On the final Friday of every month, WXPN’s Robert Drake hosts Land of the Lost, a showcase of new wave, punk, synthpop, and general rock of the 80s. If you can’t tune in live, we’ve got archives of each episode for you here on The Key.

No genre of music is more closely associated with Halloween than goth, and no era is more closely associated with goth than the 80s. Which makes the October edition of Robert Drake’s Land of the Lost a treat every year.

For this year’s edition of the show, which aired on Friday, October 26th, Drake played goth rock staples like Siouxsie & The Banshees, Christian Death, The Cure, and Gene Loves Jezebel; their synth-oriented cousins like Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, and Ministry; and sinister, seasonally apt songs from artists that aren’t necessarily witchy in aesthetic, like The Specials, The Clash, Dramarama and more.

Listen to the entire four-hour show in the player below.
