Of course I named the show after the great album by the Smittens and I pay homage to the band by using a clip of their song 11:11 for my theme. I hope the band doesn't mind, but when I have talked to various members of the band after shows they seem like nice people whom I think would be good with it.

I also use this name for my DJ night happening occasionally at the Jane Bond in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

Note that the links to shows older than 6 months might not be working, if you really want those shows please send me an email and I can get them to you. (Note that prior to 2018 I called my podcast FireballXL5, so don't be confused if you look at an old setlist)

Special thanks to Jeff Woods for finding my a place to host my mp3s!

December 4, 1998

Yes, once again I had to do a show last week, but I finally got in touch
with the guy I'm supposed to be switching with and he told me that he is
too busy and will be quitting CKMS. Hopefully, next year I will be able
to get someone more reliable to switch off with so I can have a regular
schedule. I'm off this week, but on Dec 18 its the Christmas show.

Note1: This song by Afrika Bambaataa was the first song I ever played on
the radio when I started so many years ago on CHRW Radio Western.

Note2: Looking at the linear notes of this best of Edith Piaf album she
looks a lot like my mother.

Note3: Although they had no pictures on the album, I don't think 808 State
bears any resemblence to my mother (an ad lib from the show).

Note4: Of course dedicated to "Rocket" Roger Clemens for his demand of a
trade from the Toronto Blue Jays.

Note5: This is an album of orchestral versions of Madonna songs, doesn't
it seem like they should have done this 5 years ago when she was more
