THE UNCLE PETE SHOW ———FLASHBACK———AUGUST 28, 1991

Since WHRW is temporarily running on automation while we iron out some details of how and when to re-reopen the station, here’s a hunk of Uncle Pete to treat your ears with this week.  It’s an excerpt from The Uncle Pete Show of August 28, 1991.  Forty-six minutes and forty-four seconds of fun from the days when radio was much freer and The Uncle Pete Show could play all sorts of naughty bits without fear of the powers-that-be crashing down on it. This show featured the Happy Flowers, the Descendants, D.O.A., the Didjits, the Dickies, the Feelies, and a moving ballad from the Rev. Billy C. Wirtz about Bernie The Toaster, the toaster who wanted to be Johnny Cash.  Plus there was brand new music from Mudhoney, NRBQ, and Binghamton’s own Meat Dept. (with yours truly Uncle Pete on lead vocals).  Plus news of an upcoming Abalienation/Atomic Fear/Siren Flower show coming up on September 7 at Fuoco’s in Syracuse!

There’s a playlist posted at Uncle Pete Official on Facebook.  And you can always reach me at unclepeteshow @gmail.com (without the space in there).

THE UNCLE PETE SHOW CLASSIC PUNK SPECIAL – PART XXX———–AUGUST 19, 2020

Here’s the audio archive for The Uncle Pete Show Classic Punk Special – Part XXX from Wednesday, August 19, 2020.  The annual tradition continues!!!   This is the 30th Classic Punk Special and, as per the rules of the Classic Punk Specials, featured exclusively music in a punk-type vein over 20 years old.  So this year, that meant prior to the year 2000.  Since this was part of the Uncle Pete Show Plague Summer Season (week 6), it was a little shorter than past Classic Punk Specials but still ran almost 3 1/2 hours.  (You can listen live to The Uncle Pete Shows over the air at WHRW, 90.5 FM or on the internet at stream.whrwfm.org and at our website at whrw.fm.)

This year’s U.P.S.C.P.S. included local music from the Flashcubes, Devestation Masters, and the Meat Dept.  And, as has become the tradition, there was a “Special Special In The Special” – a group of songs related by a particular theme that pop up through-out the show.  This years Special Special In The Special was “Covered 19” (see what I did there) and featured 19 songs that were covered by fairly well-known punk bands but either it’s not generally known that they’re covers or the original artist is kinda obscure and not generally known by most people who know the covers!  There’s a playlist posted at Uncle Pete Official on Facebook.  And you can always reach me at unclepeteshow @gmail.com (without the space in there) or through my Facebook page.

Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, WHRW will be going back on automation for a bit, starting next Tuesday.  So this will be the last live Uncle Pete Show of the summer season.  Check back here or at Uncle Pete Official on Facebook for news of when the Uncle Pete Show will resume live!

THE UNCLE PETE SHOW CLASSIC PUNK SPECIAL – PART VIII – (8/13/96)!!!

THE UNCLE PETE CLASSIC PUNK SPECIAL – PART VIII –  AUGUST 13, 1996!!! (COMPLETE SHOW)

Here’s The Uncle Pete Classic Punk Special – Part VIII (“Just 8”) that originally aired on August 13, 1996 on WHRW, 90.5 FM.  This Classic Punk Special, like the previous seven, featured exclusively music in a punk-type vein that was over 10 years old. So all the songs were released prior to 1986.  More new bands and more new songs! More local bands on this show too including Binghamton’s own Devestation Masters, and more from Democratic Identity recorded live on the Binghamton (NY) Courthouse steps and one from the Cuneiform Yunksters containing Vince Burns (son of a former Binghamton mayor) and Doug “Draino” Drazen (former Binghamton mayoral candidate) with a song recorded live at the Ross Park Zoo (Binghamton)!  And this year marked the solidifying of the Special Special in the Special with a special feature featuring 7″ singles.  Another six hours of punk!

Originally mastered straight to 5 cassette tapes (yup, there was a little overrun to a fifth tape), there are 4 audio files, one for each tape (plus a little extra in the fourth file).  The short blank in the middle of the audio files is where the tapes were flipped from side A to side B on that day 24 years ago.  This year also features more songs they won’t let me play any more.

I’ll probably take a break from uploading U.P.S. Classic Punk Specials for a bit.  If you’re interested in another Classic Punk Special from the archives or in a show from a particular year, let me know.  There is a slight chance I may be able to risk my life and actually do The Uncle Pete Show this summer.  Opening up WHRW in a limited capacity is currently being discussed.  Keep your ears peeled.  I’ll share the results of this discussion as soon as I hear them.

There’s a playlist for the whole show at Uncle Pete Official on Facebook. More Classic Punk Specials will be coming soon!!!

THE UNCLE PETE SHOW CLASSIC PUNK SPECIAL – PART VII – (8/15/95)!!!

THE UNCLE PETE CLASSIC PUNK SPECIAL – PART VII –  AUGUST 15, 1995!!! (COMPLETE SHOW)

Here’s The Uncle Pete Classic Punk Special – Part VII (“Lucky 7!”), originally airing on August 15, 1995 on WHRW, 90.5 FM.  The seventh Classic Punk Special on The Uncle Pete Show, once again, it featured exclusively music in a punk-type vein that was over 10 years old. So all the songs were released prior to 1985.  More new bands and more new songs!  And since this was “Lucky 7” we showcased a bunch of greatest hits from the previous 6 Classic Punk Specials!  More local bands on this show too including Binghamton’s own Devestation Masters, Teenage Head (Buffalo), Genetic Invasion (Binghamton, single), Wreck’N Crew (Cortland, single), and the mysterious and heavily requested Karma Fairies (Conklin, NY), a band that sent me one song – and a great song – on a cassette and then disappeared from the face of the Earth!!!  Six more hours of punk bringing the total number of different bands played on the first seven specials close to 400!

Originally mastered straight to 4 cassette tapes, there are 4 audio files, one for each tape.  (The short blank in the middle of the audio files is where the tapes were flipped from side A to side B.)  This year also features more songs they won’t let me play any more like the Anti Nowhere League’s love song “Woman”.  Plus, there was a timely song that just made the cut for this year’s show by the Pop-O-Pies – “Truckin'” that some just dead Dead guy had also played and a perennial favorite love song on The Uncle Pete Show – Heathen Dan with “I Like”.

I’ll probably upload one more U.P.S. Classic Punk Special next week.  It’s looking more and more certain that there will NOT be any Uncle Pete Shows on the air this summer as the WHRW studios may not reopen until at least this Fall.  I haven’t decided what, if anything, I will do if this does happen (maybe the Uncle Pete Show as sort of a weekly podcast or something like that or maybe nothing if there’s enough interest in me doing that.  We’ll see what happens.  Let me know what you think (message me at Facebook or e-mail me at my gmail account at unclepeteshow at gmail.com)

There’s a playlist for the whole show at Uncle Pete Official on Facebook. More Classic Punk Specials will be coming soon!!!
