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 show.

September 10, 1999


First off a shameless plug, I'm going to be participating in the Terry Fox
Run this Sunday Sep 19, obviously the money raised is for cancer research,
if you would like to sponsor me for any amount it would be much
appreciated.

Now back to the radio show, we didn't have a theme as it was only a week
after the last show, however we took the opportunity to play a set of
bands who are playing in the area in the near future (or as of now, the
recent past). If anybody on the list wants to go to Guelph to see either
of the shows at the Trash in the next few weeks I'll drive.

Fireball XL5 will return on Sept 24, just after the official end of
summer, so hey that's a good enough theme for me, if you know any songs
about the end of summer or about the fall send them along.
