Greg Fasolino provided all of these cassettes from his collection. He originally recorded these radio shows as they were first broadcast on WNYU-FM. Without Greg hanging onto these cassettes for nearly 30 years, these broadcasts would perhaps be lost forever. More Than a Witness salutes you, Greg.
“Life After Death” was a weekly hardcore punk radio show hosted by Hal Jannen. “Life After Death” was the successor to Tim Sommer’s excellent “Noise The Show” on WNYU-FM. Jannen’s radio show was originally known as “Hal The Show” as a nod to Sommer’s show. It was renamed to “Life After Death” via an on-air contest.
This posts represents 2 different original broadcasts. The exact date of either original broadcast is unknown but the cassette says they’re both from 1982. Both broadcasts are incomplete because not every song was recorded. Either the original taper didn’t include every track because he already had the records of the songs being broadcasted or he simply didn’t care to include the tracks omitted due to taste.
These 2 broadcasts are worthy of note because they feature demo tracks from Heart Attack and Die Kreuzen. There is also a brief appearance from Dave of Reagan Youth and Adam of the Young and the Useless plugging a show they were playing that night at the Mudd Club.
