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

August 25, 2017

Three sets of differing music, I stole a lot of the music for the first electro set from from the great Satellite radio show/music blog Gorilla vs. Bear, then was a bit more an indie pop set, which was followed by a pure funk set.  All in all I think it was a good show.

Best song I heard since the last show: Forever - Falling, see the video for the song here:
