The new AZPunk 2.0 is an ongoing in-the-works project. That means there might be
some bugs here and there. If you're looking for the best in AZPunk experience, ditch the
Internet Explorer and get your www on with a real browser!
Sometimes, my daily mining of the innernets unearths small pieces of gold that must be shared with the rest of the world. Here's a live clip from what looks like a public access TV show called the Twit Show (why can't we have nice shit like this anymore?) filming on location from the Tucson Western International Telethon recorded in the Fall of '84. While I was busy picking my nose and finding creative new ways to destroy my Star Wars figures, downtown Tucson was bombarded with hundreds of bored and creative costumed freaks looking for a good time. The video features clips of Useless Pieces of Shit (UPS) performing live.
I found this clip yesterday when I ran across the myspace page of a guy named Dylan who lives in Chicago, but runs an online radio station that plays only 100% Arizona Punk and Experimental called Dry Heat Radio. Turns out, for 2 hours on Sunday nights @ 8pm (GMT), you can tune into punkandbeansradio.com and listen to old school Arizona punk rock as well as current bands and special guests from all over the state. Dry Heat Radio takes requests and accepts local punk rock submissions to play on the air. How does cool shit like this fly under the radar? If you're interested in getting your music played on what really sounds like an awesome radio show, hit up Dylan on his myspace. We'll definitely be tuning into this. Keep up the great work, Dylan!
UPDATE: additional info from Dylan!
That can was his best friend.
I really appreciate the AZPUNK bump! Just to be clear I don't run the station just my show, Steve from Steve's Half Ass Punk Show bought all the equipment and got PnB Radio going long before I was in the lineup. We have some great shows on the station, we have an outlaw country show that is very cool, absolutely no FM radio shit on that one, we got Dope Sick Radio, he has guest like NOFX, No Use For A Name, Strung Out and so many more big time dudes. We just added a really cool Ska/Dub/Reggae show called Steel Toed Sundays from Radio De Paul here in Chicago and we have Jashie P's Street Rock Hour right before me on Sunday, so we like to think we're making a little dent in the side of the corporate music monster! One more thing, UPS just put out their 25th anniversary Box Set including their whole disco and three live shows on DVD, I got mine early, its an amazing look into the origins of the Tucson punk scene!
