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.

January 14, 2000

It was a cold day on January 14th, and almost as cold in the station
as the furnace wasn't working, there were a couple of space heaters
around but they just took the edge off. We played a selection of songs
from both of our best of 1999 singles and album lists, if you want
to see our lists you can check them out at the Fireball XL5 homepage

Also, since the last mailout we have had a winner in the Y2K Hype
contest: Although Cath had a strong start in the first half of the
contest (she got 4 points for being one day away from December 10)
Steven correctly guessed that January 12 would be the first
day that Y2K would not be mentioned in the National Post gaining
5 points and the victory (By the way January 12 is still the only
day without a mention so far in January).

This week's show is the best of the 1990s hopefully there will be
heat at the station.
