  22. Is it too soon for another song by The Chameleons? I would love to hear “Paradiso”. I’m currently listening to it on a loop. Thank you for playing the coolest mix of songs. I’ll echo the other comments; Dark Wave is the best show on SiriusXM.

  23. Thanks for the great set, Matt! Can you please play Someday I’ll be Gone from I Shook Hands?

  24. Shoegaze always rips Matt! I would give the nod to hour 3 though. Please play Makes No Sense at All- Husker Du.

  25. Great show. Another good shoegaze block, great cuts from Kate Bush and Concrete Blonde, and one of my favorite Bolshoi tracks.
