Fireball XL5 is the name of an indie-pop show hosted by Frank Seglenieks that for 18 years was on CKMS 100.3 FM Radio Waterloo. However, as a result of a format change in mid-2008, Fireball XL5 is now heard only as a podcast.

Of course I stole the name of the show from the 60s British Supermarionation program, which featured puppets kind of like the movie Team America.

I play alternative music that usually classified as indie-pop with the occasional feature on a particular artist or theme as well as discussions on pop culture topics of the day. I start off each show with the best song that I have heard since the last

Note that the links to shows older than 6 months might not be working, if you really want those shows please send me an email and I can get them to you.

Note 1: When thee Goblins (band featuring Narduwar) sing "Mario Cuomo
works at Domo" what does Domo stand for? Perhaps Domino's Pizza? And the
following song by the Goblins is called Teabagging, which director John
Waters says is the act of hitting your parter in the face with your
scrotum, I think that is what the Goblins song is about.
