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. Tonight was awesome as always. Thank you for the MLWTKK. Stigmata will always have a special place in my heart so, thank you for that as well. Speaking of memories of highschool, may I request:

    Revolting Cocks- (Let’s Get) Physical (Banned Version)

    Because that would be super cool. Thank you as always for bringing the darkness.

  2. Can you PLEASE dig up “Sheila Take a Bow” by the Smiths/Morrissey for next Sunday’s show? Thanx!

  3. Another great show Matt! I love the ending credits to this show also.

  4. Great show. Hard to pick between hour 2 and 3 tonight. I’ll have to go with hour 2.

    Would like to request Nitzer Ebb’s “Lakeside Drive” on a future episode please.

    Thanks for the great music. Have a good week.

  5. Patrick Bucklew

    Hey man been a while but i still listening. I was interested in hearing “Curse” by Recoil feat. Moby since it’s such a haunting cold song and I’ve always thought it perfect for Dark wave. I appreciate you man for keeping alive music that otherwise wouldn’t have much exposure!

  6. Who doesn’t love DAF!? Nice N’ Sleazy. Greatness.

    Requesting- anything by Buzzcocks. Why cant I Touch It, Radio 9, whatever – they’re all great choices!

    Dark Wave means a lot!!!!

  7. We’re in cosmic sync Matt as I was hoping you’d play my request The Holy Hour right at 12 midnight

    And you did !!

  8. Hi Matt have you ever played “Somebody” by Escape with Romeo? And if not why! :) I’d be stoked to hear it! Plus you should have youre own channel, I mean that. Thx love the show for years an years!

  9. Hi Matt, I would love to hear some Wumpscutt, “Soylent Green or Wreath of Barbs.”

  10. Jason Randleman

    Great show this week. A suggestion for the next show: Skinny Puppy’s Deadlines from Bites would be killer! Thanks for playing the good stuff each week.

  11. A few suggestions:

    Depeche Mode – “Lie To Me”
    The Sugarcubes – “Sick For Toys”
    New Order – “Elegia”


  12. Great show!!!

  13. Great to hear “Candleland”, Ian McCulloch. I love that entire album.

  14. Greatness with this week’s show!

    Here are some requests –

    Adam & The Ants – Feed Me to the Lions
    Killing Joke – We Have Joy


  15. Holly J Johnson

    How bout Wall of Voodoo Ring of Fire?

  16. Solid list Matt. I’ll get to it later this week. How about adding Brian Eno’s Baby’s on Fire to a future show.

  17. Have you ever played anything by Legendary Pink Dots? Seems like a natural fit. Something from The Maria Dimension, like “Third Secret” would be a good start.
    Speaking of LPD and Edward Ka-Spel, some Tear Garden material would complement the Skinny Puppy tracks nicely. I’m personally especially found of the EP The Centre Bullet.

  18. Another gnarly week of music, always enjoy listening to latest playlist at work on Mondays! Enjoy the rest of your week Matt!

    Killing Joke – “Sun Goes Down”

  19. addictedtonoise

    My suggestion for next week is Life In The Gladhouse by Modern English. Thanks!

  20. No Smiths this week. I’m feeling woozy.
    I’m kidding, great show again.
    The Devil is My Friend by The Jazz Butcher would be swell.

  21. Great show last night Matt, as usual , got to listen to the whole show , leaving from family home in LA to a drive up to Santa Maria CA. Requests , any one will work
    The Go Betweens- This Girl Black Girl
    Adorable- Homeboy
    Echo and the Bunnymen- My Kingdom
    The House of Love-Destroy the Heart
    JAMC- My Girl

  22. Systems of Romance…jeezuz, I thought the world had forgotten that brilliant version of Ultravox. Thank you!

  23. Can you play The Days of Swine and Roses by MLWTTKK next week? Thanks much from Buffalo!!! ❤️
