  1. Thanx for playing “Sister Europe” by the Psychedelic Furs on tonite’s “Dark Wave”! Can you dig up “December Will Be Magic Again” by Kate Bush for next Sunday’s show? Again, thanx!

  2. Excellent episode tonight, Matt! I loved hearing A.R kane and The Cure. Excellent songs! Goodnight!

  3. For next week

    Joy Division – Heart and Soul
    Ministry – Say Your Sorry
    Siouxsie and The Banshees- Israel
    Depeche Mode – Tora Tora Tora
    New Order – Ceremony
    The Normal – Warm Leatherette

  4. Dave Krivoshey

    Now that was on badass show Matt! The Gary Numan request gave me a flashback to 97 when Exile came out. Could you play Dead Heaven from it? That whole album is Numan firing on all cylinders.

  5. The shoegaze can’t be contained to its own block any longer.

  6. Thanks for playing my request! Here’s one I havent heard you play in awhile. The Sound Unwritten Law. thanks!

  7. Jen Whitestone

    London After Midnight- Kiss. Pretty please!

  8. I have an unusual request, and that’s the unreleased The Cure song “Step Into The Light” from the Curation show in 2018. It’s a great track – could even be a single if a studio version were ever released.

  9. Loved hearing the Psychedelic Furs on the show last night. How about pulling out “Gentlemen Take Polaroids” from Japan for next week’s show?

  10. Great flow on tonight’s show. Even the requests blended in nicely. How ‘bout wrapping up next week with “Leave them all Behind” by Ride.

  11. It was great to hear magazine and Catherine wheel! You actually make me look forward to Sunday nights! How about playing “Chinese burn” by Curve?

  12. Always great to hear ‘Kerosene’ and The Grinning Plowman. Thanks for a great show this week.

    For next week, I’d like to ask for something off The Invincible Spirit’s LP Current News. Maybe ‘Provoke You’ or ‘Oxidize’. Thanks for the consideration. Have a good one.

  13. Combustible episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    Big Black, “Kerosene”

    Request for future show:
    Roxy Music, “The Main Thing”

  14. Enjoyed the mix of tunes!

    Here are some possible DW requests –

    The Snake Corps – In Flux
    Morrissey – Alsatian Cousin


  15. How about some Death In June

    – either “Fields” or “Nothing Changes” , two of my favourites from them


  16. Shiver and Shake by the Cure

  17. Hi Matt

    E-Bow the Letter please ?


  18. E-Bow the Letter by REM if possible for next week


  19. Hi Matt!

  24. David Muggeridge

    Love the show Matt. Hoping for Imitation of Christ AND India by the Furs.
