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!

September 24, 1999

Believe it or not this was actually the last time Michelle and I were on
the radio and I'm just getting this out now. But before I got this out I
wanted to confirm 1) when we were going to be on the air next (Oct. 15)
and 2) thinking of a damn theme.

The Sept 24 was going to feature music from videos directed by Spike Jonze
but I ran out of time so that will become part of the next show. The
beginning of fall set filled out nicely even getting a phone in request
that was part of the theme.

Although the next show will be smack dab in the middle of Oktoberfest I
figure nobody would want to admit knowing any polka songs (however I will
be starting the show with the ultimate Oktoberfest song Blitzkrieg Polka
by the Wet Spots). So instead we are going to the squared circle, as we
are attending a sneak preview of Fight Club tonight. If you have any
suggestions about songs related to fighting or the like send them along.
