    Matt, dude, I think I speak for all of your listeners when I say this… O thank the God(s)? above for you and your musical tastes which enables us with those same tastes to listen to a fantastic show that not only brings me back to my youth (I am 51) but opens me up to music I never heard and shocked that I’ve never heard that song or band before. You’ve got some musical testicles and we salute you!

  25. Nice one with the Die Warzau, a definite evolution of their sound and actually some pretty nice guys. I also second the motion for Naked Raygun (showing some Chicago love)!

    For a future show how about Tackhead – Mind at the End of the Tether

  26. Terrific show as usual!! For Against always makes me happy. Could you squeeze the following into upcoming shows?

    Human Drama – Old Man
    I Start Counting – Letters to a Friend (Miller Mix)
    Ian McCulloch – Ribbons & Chains [feat. Robin Guthrie]

  27. Jeff crytzer

    Could you please play Human Sexual Response-Ann Frank Story on Dark Wave.

  28. Ken Carlyle

    Thanks for playing 23 Skidoo ‘Coup.’ I really appreciate it.
    Another great show, Matt.
