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. This was one of your special shows tonight, and that is something I am thankful for this year. Skeletal Family was a great choice and anything from the Wax Trax! discography is a guaranteed hit. I appreciated The Damned. Too many favorites and a few new ones to list.

    In honor of a local after Thanksgiving goth show of yesteryear, Sisters of Turkey, could we hear:

    Sisters of Mercy- Black Planet

    Thanks to you and all the other’s, whos’ great requests you play each week.
