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 “Antenna” by Kraftwerk for next week’s “Dark Wave”? Thanx!

  2. Thank you for the mcl tonight! Goodnight!

  3. Great show tonight, thanks especially for the Fatima Mansions, such an underplayed band.

    Anyway, I’d love to hear some Clock DVA, maybe Beautiful Losers or their cover of Black Angels Death Song. And some Shockheaded Peters would be great, too, Mr Very Big maybe, or their fantastic cover of Heartbreak Hotel.
