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. You can never go wrong opening with the Sisters. Thank you for the gift of making me aware of that Dave Gahan album. I’m sure you’re already aware, but Hyper Worm Tamer- UNKLE remix is a great listen too. Didn’t know this was an option, but wow. Thank you for the Tones on Tail. Could we hear:

    Sister Machine Gun- Sins of the Flesh

    Please and thank you. Look forward to your shows in the new year.

    Seriously, seriously good show to end the year with.

    Shadowplay as the last. Awesome!

  3. Great last episode for the year!

  4. Can I hear “Wail” by The Folk Devils if they are able to be played on the show. I’m New here and I was hope to hear it but I have a back up option “Concrete Eternal” by Ski Patrol I hope one of the two are A Okay and If not than “A Strange Day” (Live) by The Cure would rock out next Sunday night thank you hope you had a Happy Christmas and hear the next show in 2022 good grief i’m that old!!!

  5. Can I hear (Winter Kills) – Yazoo/Yaz or a band I just recently just got a new cd by the band called Ultravox if I could hear (Vienna) – Ultravox than there is always the the classic deep cut with (Lets Make A Bomb) – Heaven 17 please if you could pick one of these tracks Thanks

  6. I need to hear something by Psychic T.V please!!!! Maybe “just like arcadia” or “good vibrations”or “godstar” if not im gonna need to hear “sex dwarf” by christian death
