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.

August 26, 2016

This may have ended up being the longest podcast I have done in a while as those funk songs in the last set really are a lot longer than the typical indie pop song.

Best song I heard since the last show: Niki and the Dove - You Want The Sun, hear the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TM2WyQwocMs
