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: Bisextile Day
On Air: Frank

I started a new Leap Day tradition with this show as I had two songs that I couldn't decide between for my top song of the week, so this week there are officially two top songs of the week. Both of the these (along with the third song) all came from the excellent Popcasting podcast ( www.geocities.com/popcastingpop ).

There were also two sets of music from bands that had either just played or were about to play locally. I managed to see most of them, including a short but very fun set by Catriona Sturton, it was only afterward that I found out that she was once a member of the great Halifax indie-pop band from the the 90s called Plumtree. However, as it turns out she hadn't joined the band when the song by Plumtree was recorded.

And can I tell you how much I am lovin' the way that I can now play songs live off the internet using the Wi-Fi capabilities at CKMS. For example on my European Capitals (well almost) set I remembered during the show that I have been meaning to play a song by Jens Lekman that I found on a blog once. I managed to find it again thanks to technorati and play it on the show.

I ended with the only "Leap" song I could think of: a live (and updated) version of his song "Waiting For The Great Leap Forward".
