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

April 30, 2010

Lots of pop, some rock, and some funky stuff this show. As well I played some older material from my CD collection that I'm trying to archive to save shelf space.

The second set started with a disappointment from the past week when my chance to see The Mary Onettes in Chicago was canceled because of the Icelandic volcano. And the odds of my being back in Chicago when they (hopefully) reschedule their tour are pretty bad. Needless to say Chicago was still pretty cool.

I'm also getting better at finding out where I first heard songs so I can give credit to the great music I find out about from other people's podcasts and blogs.

Websites I mentioned during the show:

The story of the Maulies:

First song of the show (best song I heard since the last show):
The Very Most - Sod Off (See a live performance of the song here: )
