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!

August 11, 2000

I was supposed to have a guest on this show, but due to scheduling
problems I had to do it alone. I did my usual set of Canadian music, most
notobly a selection from the first full length album from local
singer/songwriter Paul MacLeod, titled Close and Play. Along with Paul
the album also features Hawksley Workman playing, producing and Mixing,
it's really good. If you would like a copy for yourself you can order one
from www.maplemusic.com or www.chapters.ca, at the chapters site you used
to able to hear samples from the album but they don't seem to be there
anymore. (I ordered from maplemusic and the CD was at my house within two
days) I ran into Paul at the Hillside music festival a few weeks back and
found out that he is now a full fledged member of the Skydiggers as he is
contributing songs to their next studio album. The Skydiggers song I
played in the first set is from their most recent release which is a live

The second set were just some really good songs that I wanted to hear,
after that I just got funky for the rest of the show boucing between
recent stuff and classics. I was very happy with how it all came
together. I also had time to play a longer song from my friend Steven's
band Geh Nackt, a very cool track called Insulin that reminds me a lot of
the band I ended off with Yo La Tengo. I think it will be a while until
the Geh Nackt album is available on-line.

So my 75 year old mother asked me if I was having a "Survivor Party", this
is a little too freaky so although I'm having people over to watch the
last episode of Suvivor I, nobody is allowed to call it a "Survivor
Party". Everyone is invited and everybody who was in the pool is assumed
to be coming, if you could tell me if your coming that would be cool.
Here's the deal: at 7:00 I'll BBQ for anybody who is there, (the choices
are: chicken, veggie burgers, salmon burgers, or sausages), then at 8:00
we start watching the show. Show up when you want, leave when you want.
No games, No costumes. Of course after the winner is revealed I'll also
be handing out the prize for my survivor pool, the possible scenarios for
the winner(s) are listed on the webpage:

Next show is this Friday August 25, as it is the week of Survivor if you
can of think of anything related to show send it in (Eye of the Tiger is
already a planned so don't send it in).
