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 great indie pop, but of course as of late I have been focusing on more of the electro side of the equation starting with my top song from Anna of the North (I still can't figure out where exactly she is from).

Best song I heard since the last show: Anna Of The North - Someone, see the video for the song here:

Remind yourself of my best songs of 2014 (including the Silent Love):
