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. Solid show tonight. Mexico Sundown Blues is an absolute banger. The Human League was a good request for sure.
    May I request:

    Love and Rockets- Kundalini Express

    Please and thank you as always. Happy V day to all.

  2. Can you dig up “Happy Lovers At Last United” by Morrissey for next Sunday’s show? Thanx!

  3. Thanks for the X. Every hour was solid (particularly loved the Reasons to be Miserable), but Hour 3 really killed it.

    Thanks for the great show. Have a good one.

  4. Great show! For me The Woodentops track was a highlight as I’ve seen them live a few and I feel like they fly under the radar, and the Swans track i’d never heard!

    Any chance of a track from Diane Birch’s Velveteen Age album, where she plays songs her parents played when she was growing up? Most are lovely, but her slow version of Strange Kind of Love is particularly goosebumpy. Thanks!!!

  5. Great show! Completely loved the first hour the most tonight! Goodnight!

  6. Wow loved the tracks tonight!! Great compilation as always.
    Some possible suggestions for next time:

    Wild Strawberries – I Don’t Want To Think About It
    The Jesus And Mary Chain – Far Gone And Out
    Delirium – Flowers Become Screens

  7. I’m loving this show. Since I’m on time for requests, I’ll throw out some songs that I always liked and hopefully others will find interesting.

    Coil-Things Happen
    Psychic TV- Horror House
    Ultra Vivid Scene-The Portion of Delight


  8. I’d love to hear “Baby Maker” by Pale Saints for next Sunday’s Dark Wave.

  9. The Cult – Gimmick

  10. Great show for all the dark hearts out there.

    Here are some requests –

    Galaxie 500 – Here She Comes Now
    Big Black – Precious Thing


  11. I remember bringing the Psycho Candy album home, still have it on the Blanco y Negro label.
    Sadly my Clan of Xymox show in Columbus has been canceled due to what they describe as a surge of the corona virus.
    The good news, in Cleveland anyway, our ER has a seen a dramatic drop in cases.
    Still, better safe than sorry, albeit disappointing.
    How about “No Words” by the group for your next show. Kinda what I said when I got the email last week.

  12. How about Swimming Horses by the Banshees ?
    take care of my desire to hear the Cure and the Banshees with one song :)


  13. Completely loved the show last night especially hearing from The Cramps with my favorite song and also hearing James Ray And The Performance I think they a Very under rated band may I please hear/suggest “Sunrise”by New Order thanks

  14. Can I hear “Mouth To Mouth” Landray Vocal Mix — The Glove
    please and Thank you

  15. “Pluto Drive”By:The Creatures please please please I absolutely love this song and really think it stands out to me because the music sounds more like Siouxsie and The Banshees than The Creatures because The Band Siouxise and The Banshees have more of a definitive oddity sound to them that you cant really master very easy so I love this song. Can’t wait

  16. It’s my Birthday can you please play the song cover that I love so much please play this song “In Every Dream home A Heartache”by Rozz Williams And Gitane Demone Cover this song is amazing again can I please hear it I haven’t heard it in so long and I’m going to look for it at the record shop on Saturday for my Birthday they are both Darkwave artist from the band Christian Death so it’s legitimate hope I can find it and hear it on Sunday loved the show last night thank you so much.

  17. The Three Imaginary Boys are no longer fully together but 43 years ago this Friday I saw them live fully intact only 3 yes that’s right I saw them in there Three imaginary boys days so in honer of that I would like to hear “Three Imagenary Boys” by The Cure please

  18. Let’s dig deep with “Mr. Alphabet Says” by The Glove

  19. Cranes Slide

  20. Daring episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    The Human League, “Seconds”

    Great show closer as well, again.

  21. I don’t mean to be a stickler.
