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!

March 16, 2001

I had more fun than I was expecting during the St. Patrick's Day show, we split the music into a set of celtic sounding music and then bands that have some Irish connection even if they don't sound celtic, ie. I don't think My Bloody Valentine was played as too many Irish Pubs on St. Patrick's Day. But looking over the setlist now I realize that all of the celtic music I have listened to is 5 - 10 years old, I just haven't been into that kind of music in many years, I don't know why.

The next show (Friday March 30) will be just a couple of days before one of the most important dates on my calendar - Opening Day of the Baseball Season. Any baseball themed requests would be appreciated.

I know I've been saying it for the last 4 weeks, but this time the Official Fireball XL5 CD is really almost ready to be shipped, they will start going out this weekend.

One last thing, once again Team CKMS is climbing the CN tower to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund (www.wwf.ca) on April 21, if you feel like sponsoring me please contact me.
