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 22, 2016

Back to the indie pop after last show's summer-like feel, starting with Christmas in July with my top song by Red Sleeping Beauty (although the song was released on an album this year that particular song is a few years old).

Best song I heard since the last show: Red Sleeping Beauty - Merry Christmas, Marie, hear the song here (I couldn't find an official video): https://soundcloud.com/redsleepingbeautymusic/merry-christmas-marie
