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. My birthday is next weekend! Can you dig up “Pantomime Horses” by the (London) Suede for next Sunday’s show? I saw them live nearly 2 weeks ago and they were kick-ass live! Thanx!!

  2. Hi Matt, Thank you for the Lead into Gold! Fun show tonight!

  3. Can we hear “She Destroys” from Final Cut in a future episode?

  4. Thanks very much for the Blitz. Great show tonight, but Hour 3 killed it. “Devil Bunnies”, anything by John Foxx, and a nice little Industrial set.

    Thanks for the good music. Helps start the week off right. Take care.

  5. In all my years of vinyl solitude, you are the first person I’ve come across that knows of Black Tape For A Blue Girl (of which I’ve had on vinyl since the mid 80’s)

    Anything by them would be great!

    p.s. I’ve meant to address this for some time.

  6. Hey Matt – Thanks for spinning those 80’s German classics (Propaganda, Xmal Deustchland). Can’t readily pick a fave hour! – all are good. Perhaps the gem “Long Train” by A. Eldritch et al. moves Hour 1 to the top (?)

    Speaking of trains – how bout mixing in some Underworld before EOY? (Dark & Long, Dark Train springs to mind, but any of their material would be awesome!)

    Happy Holidaze! – JR

  7. All About Eve – Road To Your Soul

  8. Great show, hadn’t had a chance to listen in a while. Some songs to consider for next week:

    Folk Devils – Hank Turns Blue
    OMD – Electricity
    Alien Sex Fiend – Hee Haw (Here Come the Bone People)

  9. I missed it last night but that was a killer setlist. I will absolutely catch up on demand.

  10. Excellent show and vibe going into the DW’s of December.

    Here are some requests –

    The Comsat Angels – Dark Parade
    Gary Numan – Observer


  11. Great set Matt!! Thank you so much for the KMFDM track. It’s been a bummer of a week for me so I feel like these two song suggestions encapsulate the struggle…

    Coil – The First Five Minutes After Death
    Depeche Mode – Waiting For The Night

    Thanks as always! ◉⁠‿⁠◉

  12. Great Show!
    Would love to request Skinny Puppys The Process or Blue Serge.
    Thank you!

  13. Electric episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    Electronic, “Forbidden City”

  14. Paulie Fidgets

    I got one: Pink Turns Blue, “Walking On Both Sides”

  15. Great show again! I always love to listen to it! Could you put on “Paradise” by New Order or “Spirit” (But the version off The Sky’s Gone Out, not the single) by Bauhaus? Thank you!

  16. Could you please play “The Hanged Man” by the Pink Dots? The tour rolled thru Asheville a few weeks ago. By all accounts an amazing experience- one which even left us old heads a little stunned. Rare indeed is it when the magick of performers and audience sync so well…

  17. Great show Matt!
    I’d love to hear:
    The Cure- 100 Years
    Kraftwerk- Hall of Mirrors


  18. Another incredibly dark and beautiful three hours Matt, thank you! Hour 2 was the winner for me, but all three were outstanding. Loved the deep cuts in that hour.

    Request for next week: dealer’s choice for some Rudimentary Peni.

    Have a great week, cheers!

  19. Fun show as always!
    Can I request
    Brian Eno-Golden Hours

  20. Blondes with lobotomy eyes.— my life with the thrill kill kult

  21. Siouxsie and the Banshees – Night Shift
    Depeche Mode – Policy of Truth
    Nine Inch Nails – Terrible Lie

  22. Would you consider this song? cEvin Key — Frozen Sky (Feat. Nivek Ogre)
