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 please play “Coffee Homeground” by Kate Bush for next Sunday’s show? Thanx!

  2. You absolutely out did yourself this evening. AMAZING playlist. You played so many of my potential requests and have yet again added a few new favorites to my list.

    So, let’s get weird.

    Q Lazzarus- Goodbye Horses

    Please and thank you.

    Seriously though, a masterclass playlist for sure.

  3. What a great show. Hour 1 did have my favorite Concrete Blonde song and the end of Hour 3 was great, but I have to go with Hour 2 this week. Thanks for the great songs.

    I’d like to ask you consider playing some Shiny Two Shiny on a future episode. Either “Razzmatazz” or “Waiting for Us” maybe. Flo Sullivan had such a lovely voice and never got noticed for it.

    Thanks. Have a great week.

  4. Great show as always. I’ve been working a lot on Sundays from home. I love blasting Dark Wave while I work. I’d like to put in a request for next week…
