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!

We made good on the new music theme as apart from the leap year set every
album we played (except for 2) was from the recent release section of the
music library (this section contains albums that have come to the station
in the last 90 days). Can you pick the two albums that weren't - answers
at the bottom).

After the show on March 9 Michelle and I are heading down to the Boathouse
Tearoom at Victoria Park to hear Pat Skinner and Friends play, I recommend
that everyone who can make to come on down.

For this week's show, March 9 is being recognized as the 300th anniversary
of the invention of the piano and so far nobody has used it to make a
decent song, just kidding, but if you want to prove me wrong send me you
favourite song that prominently features this ubiquitous instrument.

It came from Canada Compilation as Ray Condo, in fact the whole
It came from Canada was probably the best series of compilations
of Canadian Music)

Note 1: This is from a new album called Fatboy Slim's greatest
re-mixes, I heard a few more selections on CKMS, went out and
bought it last weekend, I love it, it's Norman Cook (aka Fatboy
Slim) remixing some great songs. The packaging is wierd as some
remixes are credited to Norman Cook and others to Fatboy Slim?

Songs not from the new release section:

Tanya Donnelley - Pretty Deep
Colour Me Psycho - Black Corvair
(The Violent Femmes and Peter Murphy were from Greatest Hits albums)
