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 25, 2015

Back to an indie pop show with lots of great recent releases (or even soon to be releases), but for the old timers there is also a song by former Go-Betweens member Robert Forster with a song that is quite reminiscent of his old band.

Best song I heard since the last show Springtime Carnivore's Name On A Matchbook, see the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQBH_7hvBu4
