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!

January 18, 2008

Theme: The Gig Theatre, Au Revoir Simone, Best of 2007, and Juno
On Air: Frank

There was a set of music that was bookended by a couple of bands that were playing The Gig Theatre that night and now that CKMS has wireless internet I was able to play songs directly from the Myspace pages of the local bands, that was pretty cool.

There was a set of music inspired by the band "Au Revoir Simone" whom I saw the week before this show in Toronto (Do you know where that name came from? Answer is after the setlist). I started this set with a cover they did for their encore by David Bowie, with the average age of the audience I'm sure that only about 3 people there recognized the song. Luckily, I was standing beside one of them (Derek). After playing Au Revoir Simone the rest of the set was just kind of low-fi stuff that reminded me of the show.

There was a set of music inspired by the movie Juno mostly stolen from this website:
