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

January 7, 2011

What else to say except that this show simply showcased all of my top singles from the year 2010. Apart from playing my number one single of the year at the beginning, for the rest of the show I put songs together that worked better musically.

You can see the actual order of my singles list at

First song of the show (best song I heard since the last best of show):
The Divine Comedy - At The Indie Disco (Video of Neil Hannon talking about writing the song: )
