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.

July 17, 2015

Three subtly different sets from the world of indie pop made up this show, one a little bit more rocking, one a little bit more electro, and one a little bit more dreamy.  But of course all good.  If you want to see a fun DIY video check out the one for the HINDS song Chili Town that is linked below.


Best song I heard since the last show - HINDS - Chili Town - See the great video here: http://www.thefader.com/2015/08/13/hinds-chili-town-video
