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

July 19, 2013

After the last show on the NYCPopfest I had lots of great indie pop that I had to get through.  In particular The Projections were a great find when I was doing some research on former members of The Pipettes.  The start of the second set were a couple of songs that easily could have been my top song and then I ended with more of an electro pop set.

Best song I heard since the last show - Persian Rugs - Always All

Websites I mentioned during the show:
