    Love that your playlist pushes outside the predictable with artists like Anne Clark and Sad Lovers and Giants. We listen every week and are always impressed by your latest mix! Thanks!

  • Dan T

    This was an especially great week. Morrissey, Lords of the New Church and live Siouxsie!! I owe you my life!!

  • Michael Delozier

    The problem I have with the playlists is that they dont flow well. They are just thrown together and have no fluidity to them. Nothing builds up or moves easily into the next song, its just a lot of mish mash that doesnt make for what i would consider a good mixed tape.

  • Mat Gillespie

    I really love Song to the Siren…. Elizabeth Frazier nails that song and I love how you followed it up with Joy Division. Thanks for all that.

    For the next show:
    The Cure The Kiss
    Cocteau Twins Mussette and Drums
    Dead Can Dance A Passage in Time
    Tones on Tail Twist
    This Mortal Coil Come Here My Love

  • Gareth

    How about All The Wrong People Are Dying by The Styrenes.

  • The last 6 songs/groups are right in my wheelhouse. As well as a bunch of the others. Nice work SUE!!
