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. Great show tonight, like always!

  2. Can you dig up “Pearly-Dewdrops’ Drops” by Cocteau Twins for next week’s show? Thanx!

  3. Mark Green

    Great show as usual Matt! I always get to hear bands I never knew about every week. Can you play Curve “split into fractions” next week? Thanks…Mark in Bono, Arkansas.

  4. UK Decay, Liabach, Soft Cell, KMFDM X-Mal Deutchland…hell yes!!!
    While I recover from sinus surgery, can you play the Gary Numan & Gang Of Four version of “Love Like Anthrax” from the Andy Gill tribute album?
    (Anyone reading this who hasn’t heard that version, DO SO IMMEDIATELY!!!)

  5. Thanks for the Terrible Parade. So many great cuts tonight. Iron Curtain. The Kate Bush track. Lowlife. The Sad Lover’s cut as well as the Damned and UK Decay.

    Great show tonight. Have a great week.

  6. Can you play But Not Tonight by Depeche Mode on your next show! Great one tonight! Thank you!

  7. Seeing as you’ve been pulling deep cuts from the Lonely is an Eyesore compilation recently, how about Dif Juz – No Motion?

  8. Please play “fireworks” by Siouxsie & the Banshees!

  9. How about a Pixies request Matt – “Tame”


  10. Enjoyed the deep cuts!

    Here are some DW requests –

    Snake Corps – Victory Parade

    And anything from The Gun Club in celebration/remembrance of Mr. Jeffrey Lee Pierce, who would have had a birthday yesterday (6/27).


  11. Given the recent Pentagon task force report, I would think MC 900 Ft. Jesus’ UFOs Are Real would be in order.

  12. Really loved the show tonight! Made me so excited to hear my request for Sad Lovers and Giants tonight!!!! Thanks so much! It was also great to hear Pink Turns Blue, Lowlife, and The Chameleons.
    Could you maybe play Missiles by the Sound next week? Thank you!
    Looking forward to the next show!

  13. A wonderful mix of songs last night. Have only a few requests/ideas for next week’s show this time around.

    The American – Simple Minds
    Babooshka – Kate Bush
    Imitation of Christ – Psychedelic Furs
    Adolescent Sex – Japan

  14. Heavenly episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    Front Line Assembly, “Right Hand of Heaven”

    Minus the episodes dedicated to one artist or their perspective tree, was this the first episode in Dark Wave history to not feature Depeche Mode?

    Request for future show:
    Depeche Mode, “Further Excerpts From: My Secret Garden”

  15. I love your show so much!

    Can you play ‘Blue Sister’ or ‘All Roads Lead To Rome’ by The Stranglers, or anything from Feline

    Bless you sir, Never Stop!

  16. Felt – Primitive Painters is/was/and forever will be brilliant.
