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. Fun show format tonight Matt. Always a great show when the full version of Elegia is played. Great Cure “song” to end the show. All the best.

  2. Can you dig up “Green Fingers” by Siouxsie + the Banshees for next Sun’s show? Thanx!

  3. WOW! I loved tonight’s episode!! I love extended tracks. especially Elegia tonight.

  4. Great choices in the extended plays. The Why Can’t I Be You and Come Alive are two of my favorites.

    Have a great week.

  5. If possible can you play Kool thing by Sonic youth
    if not can you play something from Gene Loves Jezebel album promise !!!


    Would you consider Great Fire by XTC from Mummer.

    And perhaps, think about the song ‘Versus” by Ladytron for the next shoegaze segment?

    I love your show, Matt thank you!

  7. Can you pay “Bullet With Butterfly Wings ” By: The Smashing Pumpkins , ” 16 Days ” By: Modern English
    Or “Dead Eyes Opened” By:Severed Heads

  8. The Residents “Kaw-liga (Prairie Mix)” would have been perfect for this set. I guess there are some requests you just can’t handle

  9. That’s was interesting and different. You definitely brought your A game last night. I haven’t heard velocity girl in decades. I have a CD signed by them somewhere around here.

  10. “Were Eagles Dare “is a great song by The Misfits probably the best song by The Misfits it would be cool to hear that but if not than It would be cool to hear “Screaming for Emmalene” by Gene Loves Jezebel Thanks for a great show
    Oh and if you can play two songs for me it would be very cool of you if you could play “We Have All The Time In The World”. “Live” By My Bloody Valentine off of the (peace together) album which was a festival album if possible

    • I believe it was two or three weeks ago that he played “Were Eagles Dare”, but you are correct, it’s a great song.

  11. Thank you for your curating, breadth of knowledge, enthusiasm, taste, insights, web site, and SiriusXM program.

  12. Thank you kindly for the Ministry. Every time I listen to the show I come away with a new gem I’d never heard and tonight was no exception. Could we possibly hear:

    Front 242- Don’t Crash

    Please and thank you?

  13. Now, these requests are a stretch, I’ll admit it… but please do consider them. Goth had its roots rather deeply pre-80’s, and this music really is worth exploring somehow. It has no other venue. Might be a good challenge, and keep things fresh to have an all-70’s episode..?

    Roxy Music, “Chance Meeting” (Roxy Music, 1972)
    Roxy Music, “In Every Dream Home A Heartache”, (Roxy Music, 1973)
    The Human League, “WXJL Tonight” (Travelogue, 1979)

  14. Thanks for a great show! I loved it!
    Was so excited to hear For Against, also loved hearing Digital by JD!
    Could you maybe play Heartland by The Sound next week?
    Again, thanks for a great show! Always looking forward to it!

  15. Loved the Weatherall remix of MBV! Also glad you played the 17 minute version of “Elegia,” even gladder that you don’t play this mix every time someone requests this song (lol, but it is really long, and you can play like 10 Wire songs).

  16. Matt – loved the Return of the Living Dead soundtrack selections the past couple weeks!
