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!

Theme: 80s music
On Air: Frank and bit of Barry

The first half of the show was the usual mix while the last half melded into Barry's all 80s show that followed mine.

In the second set I played a song by Meryn Cadell, most people remember her song "The Sweater" from the mid 1990s, well in a strange turn Meryn came out as transgendered in 2004 (on the CBC) and he is now a professor at UBC. The reason I know this is that Karen mentioned that he pitched a song on the former CBC show The National Playlist and his voice is as deep as mine. And speaking of The National Playlist, does anybody know why the CBC took it off the air? It seemed like a very popular show that was aimed at the demographic the CBC is looking for.

By the way you can read about Cadell here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meryn_Cadell
