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 show.

September 20, 2013

In a rare move I started out with an electro/funky set which started with my top song of the week, a band that played Osheaga that I didn't know about at the time I went to the festival.  I also got to play a song by a band with one of the best names out there "Throw That Beat In The Garbagecan!" , the song is also pretty good.
Best song I heard since the last show - Disclosure - When A Fire Starts To Burn - See the video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nsKDJlpUbA
