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 19, 2013

After the first indie-pop set, I did a spotlight on local KW band Bocce and some of the side-projects of the band members.  A couple of them have recently released some great material that you can download from the links below.  I then ended with a funky set.

Best song I heard since the last show - Wide Sea - Marianna - See the video here
