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

Lots of funky sounds in this edition, starting with a band that is coming to Toronto in the next couple of months that I hope to see.  I promise more indie pop next time.

Best song I heard since the last show: Nite Jewel - 2 Good 2 Be True, see the video for the song here:
