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 31, 1999

First about this show, we ended up having 3 guests in the studio for the
New Year's Eve show: Sari, Derek, and Graham. We tried to keep the
talking centred on the usual themes for a year end review show: TV,
movies, music. The TV talk didn't produce a lot of insight, during the
movie discussion we all had different choices for our favourite movie but
were divided as to whether this meant it was a good or bad year for
movies. Of course everybody had different musical opinions and they are
reflected in their sets, you may notice I didn't have a specific set as I
didn't have time to finalize my list before the show (but I do reveal my
pick for number 1 single of the year at the end of the setlist). This
means that our next show (January 14) will be the Official Fireball XL5
best of 1999 show.

It also means you have a bit more time if you haven't been able to send me
your best of 1999 or best of the 1990s top three list.
