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 “Stretch Out and Wait” by the Smiths/Morrissey? Thanx!

    P.S., happy EARLY St. Paddy’s day!

  2. I mean, for next Sunday’s “Dark Wave”!

  3. Great show tonight!

  4. I absolutely LOVED the show tonight. I especially enjoyed the track from TMCs Blood, and the track from Kate Bush. I don’t really have a request, just keep doing what you do ❤️

  5. Hi Matt! Great show tonight. Can you play next week, KMFDM “Go to Hell”? Thank you!

  6. Nice Human League track!

    Can I hear Soft Cell, either “The Girl with Patent Leather Face”, or “Youth” on a future episode?

  7. Keeping on the Gary Numan train here, do you have the original demo of “Bed of Nails” from the Ghost in the Shell movie? If not the Savage vrs. works. GaryNuman.com

  11. Seriously excellent show tonight!

  12. Lance Baker

    Awesome show as usual

  13. Great to hear Kingdom of Rain. Hadn’t heard it in years. How about “Monitor “ by Siouxsie from the Juju album?

  14. Great show. For next week, can you play “That Problem Child” by Doubting Thomas?

  15. Show was superb Matt. I think X-Come Back to Me would be a good fit next week.
    Gifts and flowers lay upon the lid
    Of pink silk above your face
    Tears make a river of diamonds in the dark…

  16. Freddie Bingham

    Please play Caruso by Gavin Friday

  17. Good stuff!

  22. Thank you Matt. Never Stop we appreciate you so much!
    Organic Human League never gets old.

    Think about Dalek I Love, the song is ‘Dalek I Love You (Destiny)’ from Compass Kumpas.
    Talk about a group that were the roots for great things to come.

    Five stars to you Matt. Never Stop!

  23. Super show Matt.I’ll agree with the 100 Years request above, but would like to request Swamp Thing by The Chameleons.

  24. Hard to pick a favorite hour this week. They all were great.

    Next week, maybe Red Lorry Yellow Lorry “Happy to See Me” off Blow? “Heaven” from the same works just as well.


  25. Brian Sean Kirk

    Love the show! Perhaps Thomas Leer- All About You, love that tune , so 1982….thanks

  26. Mario Acosta

    I like to request a song from early Wall of voodoo- Ring of fire can’t wait to hear it’s been a long time.
    Thank you
    Keep up the great work

  27. Great show! Loved hearing Swans. Any chance to hear Crass – Beg Your Pardon or Subhumans- Waste of Breath?

  28. Major League episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    The Human League, “Seconds”

    Request for future show:
    The Cure, “One Hundred Years”

    Quite possibly the only The Cure song never played on DarkWave. Hopefully the host doesn’t have an intense dislike for this song.

  30. I am ready to hear ‘The City Sleeps’ by MC 900 Ft Jesus
