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.

November 17, 2017

The first song of the show by Morly is a great down-beat, haunting tune that started a set that went together well.  The next set featured a song by Molly Nilsson that could have also been my top song, see the link for the video below.  I ended with a set of funk for the first time in a while

Fun fact about this show: It wasn't until after that I realized that I played both a song called "Un-American Woman" and one titled "All American Girls".


Best song I heard since the last show: Morly - Sleeping In My Own Bed, hear the song here: https://morly.bandcamp.com/track/sleeping-in-my-own-bed
