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.

I can't stress enough that everyone should watch the video for the Shamir song linked below, I know it is an ad for Ray-Bans but it is still great.

Best song I heard since the last show: Shamir - Tryna Survive, see the fun video here: http://pitchfork.com/news/68404-shamir-shares-new-song-tryna-survive-stars-in-short-film-watch/
