Here’s The Uncle Pete Classic Punk Special – Part VI (“Boxcars!”), originally airing on August 16, 1994 on WHRW, 90.5 FM.  The sixth 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 1984.  More new bands and more new songs!  More local bands on this show too including the first appearance of Binghamton’s own Devestation Masters (tape, Robert Fortner), The Chesterfield Kings (Rochester, single), The Catatonics (Syracuse, tape), Genetic Invasion (Binghamton, single, containing Jeff DaBella), Wreck’N Crew (Cortland, single), and one of Binghamton’s earliest punk bands – Democratic Identity (tape, Robert R Cotten) with a live song recorded on the Court House steps in downtown Binghamton (1978?) – a place that never saw a live punk show before that and may never see a live punk show again!!!  Six hours of punk!  And once again, the only repeat songs from previous Classic Punk Specials (other than the opening and closing themes) are a handful of requests.

The show was recorded straight to 4 cassette tapes so 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 Bad Posture – G.D.M.F.S.O.B. and my favorite Anti Nowhere League song – “So What” from their banned EP.  Lots of requests, lots of new bands and new songs and my favorite Tubes song too – Don’t Touch Me There! Enjoy these while you can – I’ll probably only be uploading a few more.

Also, there’s a good possibility that the WHRW studios may not reopen until at least this Fall which means there might not be any summer Uncle Pete radio.  If this does happen, I may consider doing new Uncle Pete Show as sort of a weekly podcast or something like that 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

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