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 21, 2012

I went old school on the first set including my top song of week Teena Marie's "Lovergirl", although I really need to listen to some more current music, that doesn't take away from the fact that it is a great song.  The next set shifted to electro-pop but I finally brought it back to indie pop for the ending set. 

Best song I heard since the last show -   Teena Marie - Lovergirl   - See the  video here
