  1. Thank you for playing Frosty the Snowman by the Cocteau Twins, I like that one! I had forgotten last week that tonight’s darkwave fell on Christmas Eve.
    Merry Christmas!

  2. Thanks again for bringing back slicingupeyeballs.

  3. Incredible show, thank you Matt. Thanks for playing the version of Lightning Man that I requested ! I feel like Ralphie on Christmas morning when he got that Red Ryder BB gun. And then you played Cries and Whispers and then Soul Manager too ? Damn ! I just want to reiterate what Scott said above – THANK YOU for bringing back this site ! You’ve filled a void – speaking of void, could you play Daniel Ash’s THE VOID when you return after New Years ? And maybe something from this list ?
