Got a request? Requests will be considered for future episodes 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. Would like to hear “Walk Into the Sun” by the March Violets for (the next after next) Sunday’s show :)

  2. Thanks for The Heart Throbs. Lots of surprises tonight with “Sometimes Always” and Jane’s Addiction.

    Looking forward to replaying this show again all week. Thanks for the great music. Have a good one.

  3. Great show tonight! Thank for New Order tonight, Matt!

    • I’m at a live show for Tears for Fears and I’d love to rehear “Long, long, long time” this Monday when I listen to the show.

  4. Nice selections tonight Matt. I would like to hear No More Nothing by FEAR on a future show. Have a better than expected week all.

  5. Lindsey L.

    Amazing show, Matt! I particularly liked hour 3, and it was wonderful to hear Kate Bush, Peter Murphy, The Smiths, and The The, as well as The Psychedelic Furs – Speaking of whom, I’d like to request Imitation of Christ for an upcoming episode. Thank you so much! :D

  6. Would love to hear “Death Wish” by Christian Death.

  7. I’m hoping this request will make it to your July 30th episode since you construct shows two weeks in advance now.

    I ask for that episode in particular because the 31st is Daniel Ash’s birthday and I’d like to hear a special cut from him to celebrate. Having met him after Love & Rockets’ show in Atlanta, he means so much more to me now. Anyway, I’d love to hear one of his solo tracks. “Foolish Thing Desire,” “Coming Down Fast,” “Here She Comes Again,” or even “Flame On” would be ones I’d particularly enjoy. But it’s your choice really!

    Have a great week! Thanks for all you do :)

  8. Haven’t heard anything from Cranes in a long time, how about jewel or everywhere?

  9. Robert Wilson

    Awesome as always ! I bet your listeners would love to hear She Destroys(Hiltop mix) by Final Cut , and…actually mixed with Section 25,s Looking from a Hiltop! Whatcha say, Matt !

  10. Great episode! The Eric Avery shoutout got me thinkin about other amazing LA bassists from that era… how about playing fIREHOSE’s Chemical Wire in a future show? Thanks Matt!

  11. Thanks for another great Sunday night.

    For a future show, please consider:
    Jesus Chrysler Drives a Dodge – Screaming Blue Messiahs
    Surfacer – 14 Iced Bears


  12. Honolulu Mountain Daffodils “Tequila Dementia”. Pleeeze. Thank You! Their cover of “Final Solution” would be nice as well.

  13. Nick Cave – The Ship Song

  14. Kurt Schmidt

    More JA please!!!

  15. Enjoyed the deep cuts!

    Here are some requests –

    Executive Slacks – Our Lady
    Catherine Wheel – Crank


  16. Awesome show as always, never fails to disappoint. Hour 3 gets the very slight nod with Giant from The The followed by a fave from NO. Huge props to the darkwavers who requested those. And thank you again Matt for always playing so many requests.

    How about a Banshees deep cut in a couple of weeks off what very well may be their best album, Juju. Album closer “Monitor.”

    Have a great week Matt, cheers!

  17. Hi Matt!

    Dreams Never End – New Order

    In Bluer Skies -EATB

    Thanks for the continued great shows!

  18. Giant episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    The The, “Giant”

    “And now the past has returned to haunt me”

  19. Another amazing show Matt! It was great to hear Jane’s and of course Tomorrow Wendy….one of my favorites. I’ve recently lost someone very close to me and would like to request Ghosts Again from Depeche Mode in tribute to her — RIP Audrey.

  20. I’m still pumped from the Cure show and was going to request a B-side, but then another song popped into my head and I had to request it!
    The Cure- Like Cockatoos

  21. Another great set!
    If you could play one of the following on some future show, it would make working 3rd Shift so much better

    The Stone Roses: So Young
    Einsturzende Neubauten: Was ist ist
    Gene loves Jezebel: Kiss of Life
    Suede: Sleeping Pills
    The Legendary Pink Dots: When I’m With You
    The Boys Next Door: Shivers
    Tricky: Christiansands
    Lush: Last Night

    Thank you for playing I’ll love you till the End of the world, a few weeks back…..

  22. “Caliente (Dark Entries)” by RevCo. Gibby should head the next Bauhaus reunion!

  23. Hey Matt!

    The last couple of shows have simply been phenomenal! Thanks so much for playing our requests – with all the other awesome things you line up every week – truly is a treat to listen to your excellent curation. :-)

    Since the show is every Sunday, here’s a request that might just be considered “appropriate!” :
    Gloomy Sunday // Christian Death
