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 PLEASE dig up “Delius” by Kate Bush for next week’s show? Thanx!

  2. Really great show tonight!

  3. Thanks for playing the March Violets cut. Might be my favorite by them. One of the best shoegaze blocks too.

    Thanks for the great show. Have a good week.

    • Sorry. Forgot a request. Can you play something from The Terrible Parade please? “Thunder” or “My Horoscope” maybe.

      Thanks for the consideration.

  8. Great show! How about some Sister Machine Gun. You’re pick.

  9. Fantastic show! Could you play ‘Love You to Death’ by Type O Negative next week?

  10. Am absolutely thrilled that you played Recoil. I’ve been waiting so long to hear Alan Wilder’s solo project on the show. Please keep the Recoil tracks coming and perhaps even next week play something from the Unsound Methods album. Have a great week.

  20. Hi, Matt I would like to make 2 different track requests of the same band the band is Mazzy star although there not considered Goth or industrial or even post punk I think the band is underappreciated and I feel these 2 tracks need to be played on dark wave at some time the tracks are “Fade into you” and “Mary of silence” thanks .
