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

March 30, 2001

I was joined this show by Trevor and Heather who share my love of baseball and in particular the Toronto Blue Jays, we had a few talking bits about the Jays and baseball. Of course we had to get all of the baseball take out of the way before Michelle came and banned any more of it.

Yes, yes I know I promised the year end CD last week, well a certain colour laser printer went down last week and has been very slow in returning from the shop, all I know is that they'll get out eventually.

The next show is Good Friday April 13th (yes I know it's also Friday the 13th but it seems like a did a show with that theme just a little while ago), don't really have an idea of what to play, but as it is the easter season and some of us might be decorating eggs before the show are there any songs about EGGS?

I'm also interviewing Andras Jones (who is playing the Jane Bond on April 21) before the show, so depending on how it goes I might play some of it during the show.

Happy Easter Everybody!
