Got a request? To be considered for next week’s show, drop it in the comments below by noon Tuesday. Requests will be considered as long as they fit the show’s format and generally within the 1stWave era — and provided the host doesn’t harbor an intense dislike of the song. 





  1. Can you dig up “Delius” by Kate Bush for next week’s show? Thanx!

  2. Great episode tonight! Goodnight!

  3. Thanks for the Peter Murphy. Great show tonight. Great Joy Division, Concrete Blonde, Throwing Muses, and Cocteau Twins cuts.

    Have a great week.

  4. Really great show tonight. I’ve asked for this song in the past but it would be really great to hear Sunshine Blinds cover of Flock of Seagulls I Ran. Really an amazing cover. Hope it’s not a right issue.

  5. Loved hearing the live version of A Forest tonight! It’s also always great to hear something from Movement by New Order. Also loved to hear The Glove!
    Thanks for a great show tonight!!!
    For next week, could I request Your Master Is Calling by Pink Turns Blue?
    Thanks and have a great week!

  6. Bauhaus, Tones on Tail, Love and Rockets, AND Peter Murphy. Nice.
    Great show start to finish. Liked the Cruel World set. Although, you almost do that every week. What a line-up that fest has.
    Next week, to keep in line with the Cruel World fest, please consider playing some 45 Grave (Riboflavin?).

    THANK YOU!!!!

    • Almost forgot…Thank you for playing Stone Roses tonight. Used to listen to them quite a bit, back in the day. Ahh, memories. That’s the best part about this show. It’s like a time machine. More-so than any other “retro”-style show. I don’t know why that is but I’m grateful to have this show to look forward to every week.
      Thank you Matt.

  7. It was good to hear the Humans again. Thanks for playing Anne Frank!

  8. Matt, Thanks for playing Colourbox and Seasick. Ya know I saw Morrissey multiple times, the last was in Dayton on 9/11/19, supporting California Son. With the whole late show ‘button-gate’ thing going on, attendance was very low. But damn, Morrissey AND Interpol performed and took their time like the place was sold out. It was like seeing these guys in your backyard. Unforgettable.
    Viva Morrissey & Viva Dark Wave

And lastly but sertently not least “Graveyard” By PIL . Last night’s Show was great “They walked in a Line” By Joy Division would have to be my favorite from last night although I myself have never heard that version because I only have that song by Joy Division when they were still Warsaw so its not the best quality but also thank you so much for a great show every Sunday .
