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. Quite a good listen tonight as well. Live songs aren’t typically my jam, but that The The was pretty good, suppose I will check that album out. The Pylon might be a new favorite. A most gracious thank you for the Joy Division. Could we possibly hear:

    The Damned- Melody Lee

    Please and thank you as always, good sir.

  2. Can you PLEASE play “Coffee Homeground” by Kate Bush for next week’s show? Thanx!

  12. Great plsylist tonight, love the Jazz Butcher and the live Killing Joke and The The, and the always welcome shoegaze block featuring one of my favorite MBV songs. Hearing “Three Girl Rhumba” also brought back memories of hearing Elastica’s “Connection” circa 1994 and thinking it sounded very familiar. Keep up the good work!
