What is Surfing The Dark Wave?


A comedy goth radio show that aired fortnightly from Sydney’s hideous UTS building Broadway, on 2SER-fm early Sunday mornings, to a small but loyal audience from 1998 to 2000. The show featured interviews, live performances, live mixes, guest DJs, live shenanigans, arguments, dirty looks, ciggy breaks and all sorts of unexpected chaos.


Initially hosted by Joe and Jeff and other various DJs.

The show went off air in early 2000, superseded by “Ex-Inferus” which aired Wednesday mornings at 3am and lasted until 2002.

Where did the name come from?

It was inspired by The Cramps song Ultra Twist…


Recent movements leave one cold, it’s a big improvement and very bold
Hangin’ ten on a shockwave, hangin’ out like the new breed say…


Thanks to 2SER-fm and our listeners.

In 2017/18, Surfing The Dark Wave returns as a podcast.
