Mal Sondock presented a hit parade every Wednesday from 1981 till 1984. For the last episode in December 1984, many famous artists gave a greeting for the listeners, such as Depeche Mode, but some also thanked Mal for his work on this hit parade. A fan-site for Mal Sondock contains many excerpts of Mal's broadcasts, including Depeche Mode's greeting.

DM's song Blasphemous Rumours was on number 12 in Mal Sondock's Hitparade that week.
