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.

  7. Great show, as always! Loved hearing the Lena Lovich gem. It reminded me of another Lena Lovich song from 1986 that I haven’t heard in forever. One she did with Nina Hagen called “Don’t Kill The Animals”. Would be great to hear that on an upcoming Dark Wave episode. Or if you don’t have that, how about “Is There An Exit?” by Absolute Body control. Thanks Matt!

  23. Matt. Awesome show and loved hour 1 and 3 was close 2nd. I have a cassette mixed tape from 1987ish with a song called “Sitting Around my Place” from Radiohead but it’s not the Thom Yorke Radiohead I don’t believe. Is this a song or band you’re familiar with? I believe I bought the single from Zed Records in Long Beach back in the day but not exactly sure where it came form. If you can find it please play it.
