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 1: RunDMC was featured on Much More Music Behind the Music last
week, the most amazing thing I found out was that when they were first
starting out Darryl McDaniels (DMC) had stage fright so he would polish
off a 40 ouncer of beer before each show. Eventually he got hooked and
was up to 20 40 ouncers every day until he ended up in the hospital and
told that if he kept drinking it would kill him. I also found out that
RUN is now Reverend Run and preaches at his local church. They are
trying to work on an album but DMCs voice is now a lot deeper and he
doesn't want to rap in the RunDMC style anymore. I think this is good,
in fact for me they could have stopped after the King of Rock album.
One of the first "Rock and Roll" shows I ever saw was RunDMC playing
the Diamond club in Toronto in 1986 I was underage and my brother went
with me, that was very nice of him as I don't know if he was that big
of a fan of the band, I must thank him for that.
