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.

April 1, 2011

The show started with an album that has been a long time coming, the last Acid House Kings album was way back in 2006 and although the band members have done various other projects, this was the first proper Acid House Kings release since then. The album is called Music Sounds Better With You and is filled with all the happy feel good indie pop that you would expect from them.

The rest of the show was a random selection of great music that I've come across in the last little while as well as an indie pop classic from Guided By Voices.

**podcast bonus - can you find my big mistake in the first talking bit? **
