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. Thanks for The Reegs. As great as the cuts were in Hours 1 and 3, have to give it to Hour 2. The Shoegaze block is back and a punkish block right after.

    Thanks for the great show. Have a good week.

  2. Great episode tonight! My request for next week is Route 66 by Depeche Mode

  3. Another great Dark Wave show, as always! I would love to hear the song “I Don’t Need God” by Greater Than One, on an up coming show please. Thanks for playing all the awesome tunes Matt!

  4. Fernando N

    To honor the legacy of the late Andy Fletcher, my special request will have to be the 101 live edition of “The Things You Said” by Depeche Mode

  5. Would love to here Shaving My Neck by Gene Loves Jezebel, the first track of theirs I ever heard.

  6. Great show as always Matt. For next week I’d love it if you would play the John Peel version of Here Today by The Chameleons. I look forward to your show every weekend.

  7. Every Sunday night makes my heart smile. My request for next week is, New Skin “Cherry flowers and bedroom songs”

  8. radio atlantis

    RIP Fletch. Good to see some love for the late great Cathal Coughlan too
    Plus – MBM!

  9. Deryl Donahue

    Love your show, Matt.

    I’d like to hear Landslide by Sad Lovers & Giants.

  10. Thanks for playing Down in the park. And an extra thanks for playing Catherine Wheel. That is the first song I heard in the car after I met her. That was extra special. Thanks again.

  11. Great show. Can you please play either Words of the Dying by Controlled Bleeding or the cover of Ministry’s I’m Falling by the Soft Kill? Thank you!

  12. So I was watching Stranger things season 4 and in the first episode there was a delightful soundtrack which has two of The Cramps songs and the one i would love to hear is “Fever”

  13. Please play Get the Balance Right. The best of the classic songs in my opinion. Depeche Mode knew at a young age what would be needed to live a good life so when Death comes, preparing would have been done.

  14. Silent Running – Emotional Warfare

  15. Hi Matt! A very nice tribute to Fletch to start and end. Thank you as always for playing my requests. :-)
    Some suggestions for next time:

    Alien Sex Fiend – I Walk the Line
    NIN – A Warm Place
    Lords of Acid – I Sit on Acid

  16. Wow what a sad day for DM fans around the world.
    I would love to request DM Something to Do
    Devo Puppet Boy
    Thank you!

  17. That was a Toasty! show, especially the live vrs of DITP by Numan! And MBM (99% should be in EVERY record collection! And Numan’s stuff toox , duh!), MBV, NIN, aw hell I could go on and end up listing everything!! Oh, I almost forgot PSI COM! (Check out their unreleased demos y’all, just search for it on YT!) which, leads me to a request for Perry’s band after PIS COM…”Chip Away”, cuz I’m not oooookkkkkk!!!! So I, I chip away!!!
    Have a day! Ok, have GOOD day!!

  18. P.S. thank you for the Fletch and Cathal Coughlan tributes. Gone too soon…

  19. Powerful episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    Depeche Mode, “Everything Counts”

    Request for future show:
    A DarkWave episode dedicated entirely to Depeche Mode

    RIP Andy Fletcher

    IMO, the greatest band of all time

  20. Constantine


    Can I hear Five Ten Fiftyfold by Cocteau Twins

    So perfect for a Sunday Night Darkwave show I think

    Don’t you Matt ?


  21. Awesome show Matt! As said above, my heart goes out to DM band, Fletcher family and fans around the globe. Nice touch to open and close. With that said, hour 2 set was a masterpiece! Stay safe and have a better than expected week all.

  22. Enjoy the dedications.

    Looking forward to the first DW of June!

  23. Beatnik Punk

    Censor (The Gutter Mix) got my tears flowing. All that sadness of what’s been happening recently had reached a boiling point and finally overflowed during that song. Thanks I needed that release.

  24. Mikal Wentz

    Thank you! Love the show, listen every week
