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

March 22, 1999

I've got to get this thing out quicker.

My friend Steven Fassnacht joined me on this show, to play his angry
german music as well a tape of one his own projects (Reborne Airjects). I
finally got to my Housemartins-Beautiful South-Fatboy Slim set, the one
thing which surprised me when I was doing research for it was that the
Housemartins only released proper 2 albums, for some reason I thought they
had a lot more. There were also a few songs dedicated to events at the
Jane Bond Cafe (Tom Waits and The Pogues) where I ended up 4 times in the
week before the show, I had fun but now I have a lot really smokeyclothes.
