1989 Festive Fifty


In 1976, BBC Radio One Icon John Peel created a music chart called the Festive Fifty. From 1982 the chart only consisted of the year’s top tracks chosen by the listeners. It would traditionally broadcast over Christmas Eve and Day.

This year saw the introduction of Brit Pop in the form of The Stones Roses. The album cover is an untitled photograph from Berlin in 1989 by Gerard Malie. Some tracks were removed because of 8tracks’ two tracks per artist and album policy.
