Got a request? To be considered for next week’s show, drop it in the comments below by noon Tuesday. Requests will be considered as long as they fit the show’s format and generally within the 1stWave era — and provided the host doesn’t harbor an intense dislike of the song. 





  1. Can you dig up “Oh To Be In Love” by Kate Bush for next Sunday’s “Dark Wave”? Thanx!

  18. Sunday nights are so much more enjoyable because of your show. Thank you!

    For Valentine’s Day next Sunday, I’d love to hear any one of these tracks –

    Senorita by VAST. It’s off the album Crimson.

    If it wouldn’t be too much trouble, if you do play one of my requests, could you make it toward the end of the show? I don’t get out of work until midnight on Sundays and can’t listen at work.

    Thank you! Goth on!
