THE UNCLE PETE SHOW CLASSIC PUNK SPECIAL – PART 2 IN 3-D (COMPLETE SHOW FROM 8/16/90)!!!

THE UNCLE PETE CLASSIC PUNK SPECIAL – PART II in 3-D – AUGUST 16, 1990!!! (COMPLETE SHOW)

Here’s the follow up to the tradition starting show posted last week! A punk panoply of power-filled presents!  It’s The Uncle Pete Classic Punk Special – Part II – in 3-D!, original air date August 16, 1990 – exactly one year after the first Uncle Pete Show Classic Punk Special (U.P.S.C.P.S.) on WHRW, 90.5 FM.   It was a busy week in the local scene with this show the day after Abalienation and D.O.A. played at the Lost Horizon in Syracuse and just a few days before the Elvis Hitler/Babes In Toyland/Gay Bikers On Acid show also at the Lost Horizon.  In fact, this show aired on a Thursday instead of my regular Wednesday night because I was at the D.O.A. show on Wednesday!

This was the second special EVER on The Uncle Pete Show. And in accordance to the official U.P.S. Classic Punk Special rules, 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 1980.  Another 4 1/2 hours extravaganza, this edition of The Uncle Pete Show Classic Punk Special has tons of songs not heard on the first special, the only repeats (other than the opening and closing themes) being a handful of requests.

The show was recorded straight to 3 cassette tapes and these installments represent sides A and B of all three 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. There are more songs that have become punk standards and a few more you may not hear very often.  Like some from local and upstate NY bands New Math (from Rochester) and the lost-but-not-forgotten Cortland, NY band Wreck’N Crew.

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