THE UNCLE PETE CLASSIC PUNK SPECIAL – PART IV – the Completion Of The Trilogy – AUGUST 18, 1992!!! (COMPLETE SHOW)

Here’s the fourth installment in the now decades long tradition!  It’s The Uncle Pete Classic Punk Special – Part IV – Beyond Time And Space – The Completion OF The Trilogy, original air date August 18, 1992 on WHRW, 90.5 FM.  The fourth 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 1982.  The first 3 Classic Punk Specials featured around 300 different songs and 150 different bands and this Special added a whole lot more new bands and songs to that list.  A few local-type bands made it into this show – the Flashcubes (Syracuse), Blotto (Albany), and the RBT Band (Binghamton).  There were also several sing-a-long favorites including the Sex Pistols – “Friggin’ In The Riggin” and the Dead Kennedys – “Nazi Punks”.  By this year, the UPSCPS had settled into a 6 hours format – a length that would stay for quite a number of years.  Once again, the only repeat songs (other than the opening and closing themes) are 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.  A technical catastrophe happened between tapes 1 and 2 when the tape deck at WHRW stopped taping for about half an hour.  Fortunately, long-time Uncle Pete friend and fan – Mike Abalienation – was taping out in Radioland and I was able to recover most of that missing part from him.  You’ll hear that patch at the beginning of the second part of this show.  Again, there’s a short blank in the middle of the audio files where the tapes were flipped from side A to side B.  This year also features some celebrity station and Uncle Pete Show station IDs from the Ramones and the Talking Heads as well as from the Mazz from Boston and Dave the Cretin.  And all you local long-time fans, listen for the Adolescents – “Kids Of The Black Hole” going out to everybody that used to live at “Walnut Street”.

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