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

November 23, 2012

I had some really good songs left over for this the last new music show of the year, so I blew threw them all in the first two sets.  Also had a great time with the last funky set of music that went from Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo to Lulu.

Best song I heard since the last show - Haim - Forever - See the video here

Websites I mentioned during the show:
