  11. The priest says we all need to gather for a DW biweekly communion. There are some great songs that are just too long for only one DW show. So difficult to choose which Halloween hour was best… Excellent job Matt! It’s fun to request so I’d like to hear Strawberry Switchblade- Since Yesterday.

  12. Great show Matt. Always enjoy buzzbuzz in the eardrum .How’s about more Essense next week? Maybe something off of Nothing lasts forever. Thanks.

    How about this request, The Wooden Tops-‘Move Me’. A great song by a great band with a rich history.

    BTW- ‘Seconds’ by the HL, freaking LOVED IT!
    Love you too Matt. Never Stop!

  16. Havent requested in awhile, but was wondering if you could play love like blood by Killing Joke? Great show btw!
