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. Was just talking about “I’m Not in Love” today. Frankenstein radio controls for sure. I dont think Ive ever tuned into how good “Poison Door” is, thank you for that. And since it’s my birthday, may I hear next week:

    My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult- A Daisy Chain 4 Satan ( your pick of what particular version)

    Last full set was the icing for sure. Super solid show.

  2. Can you dig up “Dear Heart” by Cocteau Twins for next Sunday’s show? Thanx!

  4. Route 66 by DM is one of my favorite songs, and I rarely ever hear it… original or remixed. Great episode tonight!
