The Post Punk Progressive Pop Party (The P5) was a radio show that aired every Saturday night on 88.7FM WVHC (now WRHU) Radio Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY. Back in 1978, it was among the first stations in the U.S. to play the "New Wave" of music that arose from the ashes of Punk Rock. Other college radio stations caught the wave, followed by some major commercial stations like: 101.9 WPIX N.Y, 92.7 WLIR N.Y, 106.7 KROQ L.A, 91.1 91X San Diego, 105.7 The Quake San Francisco and others.
This blog is a tribute to all of the great music of that era. We listened on cassette and vinyl, we danced to it at nightclubs, we saw the bands before they were famous, we got weird haircuts, we dressed in strange clothes. We were part of a music scene. That scene is back. It's right here online. Don't be square, be there!
