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. Can you dig up “Jack the Ripper” by Morrissey for next Sunday’s show? Thanx!

  2. Liked Cabaret Voltaire this week. Could you play some Meat Beat Manifesto next week?

  3. Can you play Killing Joke – Love Like Blood (Dub mix)?
    Thank you! Great show tonight… always is!

  4. Enjoyed what I heard thus far. Saving Hour 3 to get me through a bad work day tomorrow.

    Would like to ask for Swell Maps “Let’s Build a Car” on an upcoming episode.

    Thanks for the great music. Have a good one.

  5. Thank you once again for spinning all those great tunes tonight Matt! I would love to hear the song “Beef” by Gary Clail on next weeks show if you’re able to get that on. Many thanks!

  6. Three cheers for 45 Grave!

  7. I second the Gary Clail. Or how about Sister Machine Gun – Nothing

  8. Mat Gillespie

    Any chance you could play both of these or one at least?

  24. I appreciate the songs from symbols lately. Can’t wait to listen to the entire show to determine which one hangs on to me. Been thinking about butyric acid lately for some reason but I imagine that probably doesn’t fit here. How about switchblade symphony witches or funnel?

  25. Catherine

    I enjoyed hour three the most Matt. Although, If you listen to each hour set again I might change my mind. I’d like to hear Crank by The Catherine Wheel. Lots a excellent requests above. Have a nice week all.

  30. Fantastic episode, mate. The Tackhead track was absolutely fantastic. As far as any requests go, how about the Some Bizarre Version of Depeche Mode’s Photographs. Always liked that more than the album cut.

  31. Hey matt
