THE UNCLE PETE CLASSIC PUNK SPECIAL – PART ONE – AUGUST 16, 1989!!! (COMPLETE SHOW)

(NOW CONTAINS THE WHOLE SHOW!!!)

Here it is! A collection of sounds not seeing the light of day in almost 31 years! (well, except on certain select tape decks!)  It’s The Uncle Pete Classic Punk Special – Part One, original air date August 16, 1989 on WHRW, 90.5 FM. This was the first special EVER on The Uncle Pete Show. And in accordance to the official U.P.S. Classic Punk Special rules, it featured exclusively music in a punk-type vein that was over 10 years old. So all the songs were released prior to 1979.

Punk was just a teenager at the time, but there was so much great punk music coming out that in trying to keep up with the new stuff, some of the roots old stuff wasn’t getting the airplay it deserved. So, The Uncle Pete Show Classic Punk Special was born to take care of that!

The show was recorded straight to 3 cassette tapes and these installments represent sides A and B of all 3 tapes. You’ll notice a blank in the middle of the audio files. That’s where the tapes were flipped from side A to side B. These hunks – and the whole show – contains many songs that have become punk standards and a few you may not hear very often. Like some of my favorite love songs of all time: “Sit On My Face Stevie Nicks” by The Rotters and “I’m In Love With Your Mom” by VOM.  And some from lesser know names like the Maniacs, the Pigs, Rachel Sweet, and The Radiators From Space.

There’s a playlist for all 3 parts at Uncle Pete Official on Facebook in 3 separate posts. More Classic Punk Specials will be coming soon!!!
