New Wave Night on Darkside Radio – 27 August 2011

Greetings and Salutations! This week marks the second week that I have let the trivial incidents of the week prevent me from taking care of business and finishing my blog. I believe that I may be having a bit of writer’s block, only not by my own design. I think I was given the literary equivalent of a cockblock. There I said it.

Thank you, DJ Zephyrael for this, it is still one of my favorites

This week has been an odd one. Greeted with ghost images from the past in the form of photographs, I found myself waxing a bit nostalgic and have decided that tonight’s show will be a tribute to the Eighties that was the New Wave that begat the Goth. Coming up with this program was tough; for every song that I wanted to add, I found two more after the fact that I wanted to add. One song that did not make the cut was th Tom Tom Club’s “Genius of Love.” Sorry, Tina and others, I opted to go with Talking Heads instead.

Below you will find the playlist for the evening as planned to this point. The artists are not necessarily played in that order and the list is subject to change. If you have any requests, follow me on Twitter ( and send me an message.

  1. I wonder who blocked your literary cock? The picture, you already know I like the picture. I also liked this playlist. I realize I am late in commenting. I guess you aren’t going to be on this week, or are you?
