THE UNCLE PETE CLASSIC PUNK SPECIAL – PART III in 4-D – AUGUST 14, 1991!!! (COMPLETE SHOW)

Here’s the third installment in the now decades long tradition!  It’s The Uncle Pete Classic Punk Special – Part III – in 4-D, original air date August 14, 1991 on WHRW, 90.5 FM.  The third 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 1981 (and all were played on vinyl!).  The first 2 Classic Punk Specials set the tone and featured the core of the bands that kicked down a few musical doors in the 70s.  By this 3rd UPSCPS, whole walls were comin’ down and the show expanded from 4 1/2 hours to 6 hours to be able to give time to even more of the lesser known bands and styles.  And once again, this new chapter of The Uncle Pete Show Classic Punk Special contains tons of songs not heard on the first two specials, the only repeats (other than the opening and closing themes) being a handful of requests.

The show was recorded straight to 4 cassette tapes and the 4 audio files each represent sides A and B of their respective tapes.  You may notice a short blank in the middle of the audio files. That’s where the tapes were flipped from side A to side B.  There are even more songs here that have become punk standards and a few that I don’t get to play on the radio anymore (the radio police of the 80s and 90s were far less oppressive) like one of my favorite Iggy and the Stooges songs from Metallic KO that was co-written by Iggy’s mother (as he informs us in the intro).  New bands that made the cut that year included the Cramps, the Circle Jerks, and the Jim Carroll Band.

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