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.

January 4, 2008

Theme: Best of 2007
On Air: Frank

I was actually giddy with excitement as I was putting together the music for this show, I was excited about being able to play a selection of the great songs that I played over the year. The first part of the show featured my favourite singles of 2007 and the final 10 songs were from my top albums.

You can see all of my picks here:

I did my best to indicate on the setlist where I first heard about each song.
