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. Absolutely awesome show as always. And thank so kindly for the Sad Lovers & Giants. I’m not sure if this fits the criteria considering it is from a newer act, but it is remixed by a frequent staple on the show. May I request:

    She Past Away- Sanrı (Clan of Xymox & Ronny Moorings Remix)

    I dont even know what I would do if you did. Thanks for what you do.

  2. Can you dig up”Picadilly Palare” by Morrissey for next Sunday’s show? Thanx!

  3. Thanks very much for the Deine Lakaien. Especially loved it as the follow up to the DM cut.

    Great show, but I’d have to give this week to Hour 1. That block from Red Lorry Yellow Lorry to Japan really nailed it for me.

    If possible, would like to ask for Girls Under Glass “Tomorrow Evening” in an upcoming episode.
    Thanks and have a great week.

  4. Blank Sheets by bel canto would be great

  5. Robin Olsen

    Hi Matt! OMG you gey better n better each dhoe, and this weeks show was muwah, ^chefs kiss^!
    I’d like to hear March Violets “Turn to the sky” if you can pretty please!,

  6. Great show tonight! I loved hearing The Cure and Daniel Ash tonight.

  7. Xavier H.H.

    Love to hear a track by The Bubblemen “The Bubblemen are coming “

  8. Figures on a beach? That was so great to hear. Those Just Say Yes compilations we’re fantastic.

  9. David Kensinger

    Yes! Figures on a Beach. Very nice!

  10. Don Pursley

    You spoiled us last night Matt. Such a great show. Thx for all the great music last night.

  11. Seeing it’s that time of year again my request for the next show is Siouxsie and The Banshees’ “Head Cut.”

  12. Great choices on this episode!

    Here are some DW requests –

    Snake Corps – Look East for Eden
    Lush – Leaves Me Cold


  13. “Blue caller Suicide “ by The Refreshments
    Thanks for the great trax

  14. Hour 3 Matt…brilliant my friend. See if you can squeeze in Sun and the Moon- A Picture of England. Have a better than expected week all.

  15. BIT-tersweet episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    16 Bit, “Where Are You?”

    How awesome to hear Sven Vath from 16 Bit. The video of him dancing is quite mesmerizing. I am going to request another one of his songs from his later project called Off. The song was included in the Razormaid series. Great song!

    Request for future show:
    Off, “Time Operator”

    (Razormaid if possible)

  16. How about The Stone Roses Made of Stone (808 State Mix)? Always thought the intro was very October sounding.

  17. Great show as always Matt.
    How about some Magazine for the next show? Permafrost?

  18. Christina Johnston

    How about The Cure A Strange Day or Swamp Thing by The Chameleons next week?

  19. I would like to hear Love by The Cult

  20. Howz abouts a deep cut by The Simple Minds I was thinking of deep cuts and this one came to mind “Boys from Brazil” i also recalled that you have played this track before a few years ago Thank You Matt DARKWAVE ON 1ST WAVE !!!!!!

  21. What if you played Splash By The Legendary Pink Dots thanx

  22. Still reeling from the loss of Richard H Kirk and loving seeing some Cabaret Voltaire often…how about something from Mix-Up next week?
    Also, what are the odds of something from J.G. Thirlwell’s catalogue (Foetus/Steroid Maximus/Clint Ruin)?

  23. Great show, esp the 2nd hour!
    Would like to request the song Candle by Skinny Puppy.
    Thank you.

  24. Many thanks for the Cabaret Voltaire, and the Naked Raygun brings back memories of watching people stage dive off the balconies back in the day!

  25. How about the legendary track from ghostbusters called
    “Magic” by Mick Smily
    Thanks ! You had great tracks by the birthday party and cabaret voltaire

  26. Love love love your show….always a pleasure to listen to.
    I’m likely too late for the upcoming show, but would you consider playing Boris Mikulic “Diana”…..?

  27. Matt, there has to be some Jazz Butcher played this Sunday night….there just has to be …

    RIP Pat Fish

  28. It’s Thanksgiving this weekend in Canada, and we all get to stay up late and listen to Teardrop Explodes ‘The Great Dominions’ on the Dark Wave radio program on Sirius XM with our not easily-flattered host Matt Sebastian from Slicing Up Eyeballs.

  29. Hi Matt,

    Could “In a Manner of Speaking” by Martin Gore be played sometime? Thank you!
