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

August 16, 2013

For the first time this year I went to the Osheaga festival in Montreal, I had heard about it for many years and it was great, I would recommend it to anyone.  I did a lot of talking during the show to recap all my impressions of the festival.  I couldn't play all the bands that played, but touched on most of the ones that I saw which impressed me.

Best song I heard since the last show - The Heavy - What Makes A Good Man - See the video here
