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.

October 27, 2017

I started out with a dreamy song by Yumi Zouma and continued down the indie pop path for the first 2 sets.  I ended with a set inspired by the recent Satellite Radio channel called Carolina Shag.

Best song I heard since the last show: Yumi Zouma - Depths (Pt. 1), hear the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJOn241bGxE
