    Great last night that Sex Pistols “Anarchy In The UK” was really the lead song of the dark wave program, unless it was the last song of the first wave program. I have a story to tell about that song: New Order used to use that as an intro to when they played live, I have 2 audience recordings I made of 2 different shows they played in my town, New York City, back in December 1986, then again in August 1987, either way, it’s great to hear Sex Pistols, anywhere, anytime. But I digress, THANK YOU for playing MY request for Dead Or Alive with Wayne in the band, and getting to hear JAMC, Siouxsie, the Dead Or Alive was awesome, to say the least…next week I request Gene Loves Jezebel, how about Shaving My Neck, or Screaming For Emmaline. Let’s dig deep again…

    Here are a couple of requests –

    Executive Slacks – Our Lady

  24. Can I just tell you how cool it was to hear Dead or Alive on the show? SUCH A GREAT CUT BY THEM! Other great notables for me this go ’round were Richard H. Kirk, Fad Gadget, and (always) Depeche Mode. Thanks, Matt, for another fun show! ’til next time, stay safe & stay healthy.

  25. Hi Matt, thanks for playing my request (Richard H Kirk : “Hipnotic”). Love the sound of that whole album – very 1985 Cabaret Voltaire-ish ….

    How about some Lush next week ? Maybe something from 2016’s return EP with “Out of Control” ?

    • Oops, forgot to mention – if you can’t fit the Lush request in during the next broadcast, any upcoming week is fine. Thank you.

  26. A late big thank you!!! for playing my Bauhaus Birthday request!!! Also – Lush!!! Stellar choice!! Haven’t heard them in a while. Have to revisit them!! Thank you again for the weekly journey in darkness!
