Here’s The Uncle Pete Classic Punk Special – Part VII (“Lucky 7!”), originally airing on August 15, 1995 on WHRW, 90.5 FM.  The seventh 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 1985.  More new bands and more new songs!  And since this was “Lucky 7” we showcased a bunch of greatest hits from the previous 6 Classic Punk Specials!  More local bands on this show too including Binghamton’s own Devestation Masters, Teenage Head (Buffalo), Genetic Invasion (Binghamton, single), Wreck’N Crew (Cortland, single), and the mysterious and heavily requested Karma Fairies (Conklin, NY), a band that sent me one song – and a great song – on a cassette and then disappeared from the face of the Earth!!!  Six more hours of punk bringing the total number of different bands played on the first seven specials close to 400!

Originally mastered straight to 4 cassette tapes, 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 the Anti Nowhere League’s love song “Woman”.  Plus, there was a timely song that just made the cut for this year’s show by the Pop-O-Pies – “Truckin'” that some just dead Dead guy had also played and a perennial favorite love song on The Uncle Pete Show – Heathen Dan with “I Like”.

I’ll probably upload one more U.P.S. Classic Punk Special next week.  It’s looking more and more certain that there will NOT be any Uncle Pete Shows on the air this summer as the WHRW studios may not reopen until at least this Fall.  I haven’t decided what, if anything, I will do if this does happen (maybe the Uncle Pete Show as sort of a weekly podcast or something like that or maybe nothing 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!!!
