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

January 28, 2000

We could have phoned in this show, not only did we know what
we were going to play but we had all the albums as it was our
best of the 1990s show. Once again you can see all the picks on
the webpage:

For the people who have asked, yes I'm working on the year end
CD, hopefully it will be going out sometime next week.

The next show is this Friday February 11, as it is as
close to Valentine's Day as I'm going to get the theme will
be love in three parts: Love Good, Love Bad, Love Sad. So you
can send me your favourite love songs.
