  18. My weekly communion has been once again, fully satisfied.
    Your show is so great and the website is my daily news.
    A week ago or so, someone requested ‘Game Above My Head’ by Blancmange.
    That request reminded me of this remarkably underrated duo. I’ve been massively rotating their work on my playlist lately and I believe, in my opinion, ‘Blind Vision’ was one of their finest moments.
    The video is albeit dated like most of the era, is still fun to watch and really captures that most iconic time.
    One of my favorite videos ever, right next to ‘Do You Wanna Hold Me’ by Bow Wow Wow.

    Love ya Matt. Never Stop!And Viva Blancmange!

  19. Awesome show as always. I’d love to hear Words (Of the Dying) by Controlled Bleeding sometime soon. Thanks for the great music.

  20. Absolutely brilliant work Matt. Wish I had your job.

    Something dark from Gary Newman please.

    I enjoy reading comments above.

    Grey show as always. Now the requests
    Psychedelic Furs- Sister Europe
    Ghostdance- Heart full of Soul
    Fields of the Nephalim- Moonchild

  22. Thanks for playing my request. For the next show I would like to request Electronic ‘Get The Message.’
