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 3, 1999

I have to get this list out early as Charlene and I are switching slots,
so Michelle and I are on this week (Sept 10) and Charlene will be on the
next week. (for those of you keeping score at home).

This means I have nothing planned for the show, however it is the end of
frosh week here on campus, so if any of you have any interesting memories
of your frosh week, or any songs which stand out in your mind from that
time send them along. Or if anybody who is within travelling distance
wants to be on the show today that would be cool as well.

The Sept 3 show featured a couple of sets about the band Unrest, but even
more about its front man Mark Robinson. He is from Washington, DC and
started a band in high school with friend Phil Krauth called Unrest in the
early 80s, then in 1991 they added bassist Bridget Cross. The band
released 3-5 albums depending on your definition of albums and EPs. After
splitting in 1994, Mark and Bridget reformed a year later as Air Miami and
released just one album. Then Mark joined with a couple of other
musicians and released an album covering old show tunes under the name
Grenadine. His latest project is the band Flin Flon which released the
ablum A-OK last year (all the songs are named after Canadian Cities) and
according to the Teenbeat website (www.teenbeatrecords.com) are releasing
another one this month. By the way Robinson also founded and runs the
teenbeat record label.

We also played some songs associated with camping as Michelle and I went
on a canoe trip to Algonquin Park a few weeks back.
