The first block of this show was a set of hot new industrial and darkwave songs. Then we began the main event proper, which was the first part of a look back at fifty years of industrial music. We started at 1973 and played one song from each year up till 2000. We covered a variety of styles, from the more experimental to mainstream accessible, to EBM and industrial metal, and even a bit of rhythmic noise and power electronics.

Credits: this fifty years of industrial music show was inspired by The Last Exit For the Lost’s “50 Years of Metal Shows,” in which they play a track from each year up to the present.

This show was supposed to be both our Halloween show and our return to live radio. However, The Radio Gremlins ruined everything by sabotaging my car and I had to cancel the show. However, I threw together a pre-recorded show because I put too much work into making this playlist for it to go unused and dammit, we’re doing a Halloween show!

We started this show with a “mood setting” block. We followed that with a set of tracks and theme songs from horror movies. The third block was a set of metal tracks, recent and old, referring to or about Halloween. The fourth block was a set of songs about horror movies in general. The fifth block was a set of moody dark ambient and dungeon synth tracks, and we closed the show with a mix of industrial and goth tracks celebrating All Hallow’s Eve. We hope The Great Pumpkin blesses you and that you have a great Halloween—or a nice Tuesday, if you don’t do Halloween.
