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

Not much to say about this show, lots of really nice indie-pop, I was trying to get a show out before I went to the New York City Popfest which will probably be a major theme of the next show.

Websites I mentioned during the show:

The Maybelines - Wait For You:

Story about the Kamikaze Sex Pilots:

Video of Hot Pants Romance:

First song of the show (best song I heard since the last show):
She & Him - Gonna Get Along Without You Now (See a live performance of the song here: )
