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

Theme: Nothing
On Air: Frank and Wayne

It was great to have Deep Space Wayne on the show last week, even though the theme to his set was "CDs from Wayne's car". As we had to play some music during the show, we weren't able to have all the conversations we wanted, but we did our best to keep up with the "more talk, less rock" credo of the station. He was also gracious enough to offer to share his "roll up the rim to win" cup with a caller which he opened live on air at the end of the show, unfortunately it didn't win. Of course if it did win we might have had a court case like those two little girls in Quebec.
