Here is the fourth installment of the WNYU radio show "Life After Death" to be uploaded to this archive. This is from is a recent batch of classic New York hardcore radio shows from 1982-83 that was sent to me for digitizing for purposes of being archived here. This tape is an amalgam of two different broadcasts and came to me on one cassette tape. It's likely that these two broadcasts are sequential in when they first were transmitted. The track list below represents the full songs that were featured on the cassette I received.

The centerpiece of this cassette is indubitably the interview segment with Bobby Steele of the Undead. He's fresh out of the hospital and dying to drink. Steele comes off as a real wreck with his seemingly careless on-air demeanor. He also expresses his frustration with the local scene and the lack of support for new bands. Janner's on-air personality combined with Steele derelict nature make for one of the most awkward interviews I've ever heard.
Thanks to Greg Fasolino for supplying this recording.
