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.

November 22, 2013

This year, The Pastels released their first album since 1997, this band was there during the start of the C86-twee movement back in the mid-80s.  Apart from the great song that I played from the album, I also have a link below to the great video that really has a great feel to it.  The rest of the show consisted of me trying to clear out a lot of music before the end of the year.



Best song I heard since the last show - The Pastels - Check My Heart - Here the song here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjxYLFWxR6E
