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.

April 22, 2016

Just like the last show, there were 2 indie pop sets followed by an electo pop one, although the first one was mostly more rocking bands with female lead singers (or entire bands).  And you will have to listen to the show to find out why I have a link on how to make Knife Pleats in the links.

Best song I heard since the last show: Bleached - Keep On Keepin' On, see the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmgBdqsOwLo
