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.

March 3, 2006

Theme: Nothing
On Air: Frank


Yes, it was only last week that I was on, but I'm filling for Charlene this week so it will be three weeks in a row for Fireball XL5 (Lord help us all). If you want to play a game with set number 2 on the podcast try and guess the second song in each of the 3 sets of songs: In each case the first song has been compared to a well known act, the second song was by the well known act. For those you that don't want to play along, the full listing of the second set is at the very bottom of the mailout.
