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 19, 2014

This entire show focused on the second release from the Eardrum Pop label in the Between Two Waves series.  Eardrum Pop is a net-label that puts out a lot of great stuff and the bonus is that you can download it all from them for free (but if you like their stuff you should probably make a donation).  The Between Two Waves series takes members from two different bands and they have to write a new song and make up a new band name.  The first compilation came out in 2009 and this one continues on with this great tradition.

Best song I heard since the last show - Franklin's Kite and Postal Blue - Mumble - See the video for the song here: https://soundcloud.com/eardrumspop/franklins-kite-mumble
