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.

January 17, 2014

What will be by definition be my best show of the year, as it was me playing all my favourite singles from 2013.  Not much of a mystery as I did tweet all of these songs during the month of December.  To be honest any of the top 4 could have been number 1, but there always has to be a winner.


Best song I heard all year - Jessie Ware - Imagine It Was us
