    Some time in the future I would love to hear 23 Skidoo ‘Coup’ if possible.

  7. Matt, the episodes over the last few weeks have been fantastic. It was great to hear Dalis Car last night. I’ve also been meaning to say thank you for playing my request on the 12/20 episode (Medicine – She Knows Everything). In case you need a couple of requests for upcoming episodes, here you go.

    black tape for a blue girl – hide in yourself
    Cocteau Twins – Millimillenary

    Thank you for all that you do. Cheers!

  8. Another great set to close the weekend! Did you know the rhythm to “Jesus built my hotrod”!What is modeled after the engine of an IndyCar racing at full speed? I guess Al’s father was an IndyCar mechanic and he spent time there and he loved the sounds the cars made

  9. How about Nine inch nails Kinda I want to for next weeks show? thanks!

  10. Constantine

    Could you play “Babble” by the Cure for next week’s show Matt ?

    Here are some DW requests –

    Severed Heads – We Have Come to Bless the House
    The Cramps – Sunglasses After Dark


  12. Hi Matt, could you play Tinseltown in the Rain by The Blue Nile. Not a “dark” song, but if you don’t play it on your show there is no other place for people to hear this great song.

  13. Hi Matt, haven’t requested anything in a while so thought I could try for two this week. The song Might As Well Be On Mars by Pukka Orchestra.

  14. Would love to hear Pailhead “Anthem” on the next show. Thanks Matt!

  15. Two Simple Minds songs about cities in two weeks…, just mind blowing, nuff said!

    Still waiting on my request late last week for Tackhead, but can you also add to the cue Ministry’s cover of Roxy Music’s “Same Old Scene?”

  16. Beatnik Punk

    He drops a capsule in your drink
    Spikes your dreams with madness …
