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. As always it has been well worth the wait this week for tonight. Sunday night hasn’t been this anticipated since the Simpson’s in the 80’s/90’s. Moev was a particularly good pick tonight.

    It would be really cool to hear:

    Electronic Circus- Direct Lines

    You do the lord’s work and we thank you.

  2. Can you dig up “Morning Fog” by Kate Bush for next Sunday’s show? Thanx!

  3. Thank you for the Girls Under Glass.

    Also my favorite cuts by Jazz Butcher, Moev, and some of my favorite cuts by Peter Murphy and Mission of Burma. Hour 2 was the clear winner for me tonight.

    Thanks and have a great week.

  4. I loved hearing Moev and Off tonight!

  5. The Coil song gives me shivers, thinking about the context of when this track came out and the advances in HIV care since. For a future episode can we hear from them “The First Five Minutes after Death?”
