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.

February 16, 2001

The kiss set went well, in fact if I could have found all the songs I was looking for I probably could have done the whole show on that theme. Especially with all the suggestions I got from different people with quite a few from Kenton, unfortunately me being a big doufus forgot to print out Kenton's e-mail and I couldn't play any of his songs, for this I apologize. I'll try to play a couple of them this show.

For this week's show (March 2) a band that is playing the Bombshelter on Friday, the Inner City Surfers has asked to come on the show. I haven't had a band on the show since my days of doing the Friday afternoon show with Kenton and Derek, but I remember it was always fun to have people on the show. I have no idea what they sound like but I have decided to go for it, I hope that wasn't a mistake.
