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 played Rip It UP. That is so unbelievably cool. Do Ya Think I’m Sexy? You played a sexy game tonight Mr. Sebastian. You played it. You played Goodbye Horses. Night Shift was the song I requested the weekend my daughter was born. Thanks for the memory trips tonight.

    Could we hear:
    The March Violets- Turn To the Sky

    Please and thank you for this weekly communion. You’ve done 2022 well.

  2. Can you dig up Kate Bush’s “Wow” in honour of Valentine’s Day weekend for next Sunday’s show? Thanx!

  3. Great show tonight! The second hour was my favorite tonight.

  4. Thanks for the Little Nemo. Show killed it tonight. Especially that opening set and the shoegaze-y block. Haven’t finished the show, but were you out tonight? Don’t recall hearing you.

    Since next week is Valentine’s Day, would like to request either
    Lords of Acid “Stoned on Love Again”
    X “True Love Pt. 2”
    Thanks as usual. Have a good week.

    • There was some kind of technical mishap. Got fixed toward the end of the show. But I’m told the talking parts have all been re-inserted into the On Demand version of the show that’s now streaming, for anyone who feels like they missed out on needless DJ chatter between songs.

  5. Great show tonight! Loved the shoegaze and industrial blocks. For next week can we hear “Lovers” by Specimen for Valentine’s Day? Thanks!

  6. Matt …. Thank You for playing my Curve request tonight. Really fun show tonight. Not as much banter from you tonight compared to other Dark Wave episodes. Take care.

  29. I’ve gotten hooked on your show recently. There’s not many places to hear this music and it brings back a lot of great memories. I realize I’m late for requests this week so I’ll try to get some in for next week but with Valentines Day coming up I wanted to go ahead and throw this one out, and I haven’t heard you play anything from this band.

    Greater Than One – Why Do Men Have Nipples?

    Thanks for the great music!
