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: I also heart Labrador Records
On Air: Frank

As I never pass up a chance to play bands from the great label Labrador Records, I couldn't resist playing a set of music by bands from the label when I heard the song "I heart Labrador Records" by the band Jam on Toast. All the bands I played in the set are mentioned in the song which contains the great line "All Swedish kids are born with little indie pop hands".

I have to admit that the reason I first listened to the band Parker Lewis (my top song of the show) was because I was a big fan of the TV show Paker Lewis Can't Lose ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parker_Lewis ), although looking at some clips on youtube I don't know if the show stands the test of time.

And although the song by Parker Lewis was the top song I had heard in the two before the show, the best new song during the show was by "Foundations" by Kate Nash, do yourself a favour and check it out.

I also want to mention that the band The Summerlad that started out the third set are from Calgary and one of the members is the brother of setlist member Iain G. The song has also been on the CBC Radio 3 Top 30 for the past few weeks.
