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.

After the heavily indie pop focused based last podcast, this one has a summer feel that as a lot of the songs came from the summer song list that is linked below.

Best song I heard since the last show: Fluir and Jesse Marantz - I've Gotta Have You, hear the song here (I couldn't find an official video): https://soundcloud.com/fluirmusic/ive-gotta-have-you
