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.

March 18, 2016

After 2 shows looking back to 2015, this was finally show with some newer music consisting of a couple of indie pop sets followed by some elctropop.

Best song I heard since the last show Edine avec Lisle Mitnik et son orchestre - The West Coast, see the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFJyINNn_00
