We started this episode with industrial tracks that came out in the past year. After that was a block of belated requests and dark industrial. That was followed by a noise rock set. Then we did a set of post-punk. The midnight block was a mix of dreamwave, neofolk, and a little indie, then we closed the show with a block of tranquil ambient.
We started this one with a block of Japanese industrial. That was followed by a block of hot new industrial tracks that came out recently. After we played a block of recent (i.e., from this current decade) post-punk and darkwave songs. Then we went played a set of Japanese noise rock and death industrial, which was followed by a block of topical songs addressing the thirtieth anniversary of the Tianamen Square Protests and flooding along the Arkansas River. We ended the show with some space rock, early electronic, and a soothing ambient track.
This was our Japanese artists special, which was suggested by our friend Jason. We started with a block of industrial, going with a mix of recent and old school material. Then we a had a block of wild experimental noise rock, including rare live Melt Banana recorded here in Arkansas. That was followed by a block of noise, and then two blocks of psychedelic noise rock. Then we closed the show with an experimental and ambient block.
Update: The Lingua Ignota show in Little Rock that was mentioned in this episode was cancelled due to health issues. We’re wishing Krysten of Lingua Ignota a fast and full recovery.

This started off weird… I was late getting to the station and technical problems ate up half of the first block, but we persevered and made the show happen.
We started with Arctic Flowers covering Joy Division, in honor of the anniversary of Ian Curtis’s death, and Street Sects. Then we got moving with a set of darkwave and post-punk. That was followed by a set of danceable EBM. There was a block of blackened noise and power electronics after that. We played a set in honor of this month’s full moon, and we closed with a block of ambient.
