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: Spotlight on HHBTM
On Air: Frank

I got through a lot of great music this show that I had stored up the weeks and months before. I also did two sets highlighting a great record label with a great name: Happy Happy Birthday to Me. I came upon them reading a blog that described bands as having that "HHBTM" sound, I like the band so I did some research and found out what HHBTM stood for and found the record label's website. Most of the bands have the Indie-Twee sound that I'm into so it was a fortuitous find.

You can find out more about the label and listen to many of bands here: http://www.hhbtm.com

Just one other note that the song my Murray Dear sounded to me so much like the Magnetic Fields that I had to play them immediately after. In other Magnetic Fields news their new album is due out in January something that I'm very much looking forward to hearing.
