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

Another top song I got from listening to satellite radio, I don't know much about the band Sales, but damn that song is good.  After two sets of indie pop I did a long overdue funky set, including the song Forget Me Nots by Patrice Rushen which, as well as being yet another song from satellite radio, is a song I keep hearing around.  Strange as the song was released 1982.

Best song I heard since the last show - Sales - Chinese New Year - Listen to the song here:
