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

September 26, 2008

Theme: More leftovers
On Air: Frank

Not much to say about this show, still working on lots of leftover song list that just seems to get bigger each week.

One of the cool things about CKMS was the new release section, although a lot of time it didn't have much I was interested in, every once in a while it was nice to flip through a CD from somebody I had heard about. One such CD would have been the new release from Montreal's Hexes and Ohs that I happen to know is at CKMS. But I was able to find a place to stream the new album so with a bit of work anything is possible.

Here are some of the links I mentioned during the show:

I said during the show that you could download this song by Ed Greene
from his record label, but their website is now under construction.
