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: The best thing about New York City is you and me
On Air: Frank

This show seemed like it was over before it started, it just went by in flash. Unfortunately for the people who were actually listening (or about to listen on the podcast) I did a lot of talking, mostly about my trip to New York City the weekend before the show. I won't go into the stories here, but if you do check out the podcast you can hear about why we went, the flights from hell, and a first hand account of NYC's Bowery Ballroom.

The top song this week was from a very unknown artist from Winnipeg whom I saw on Muchmusic's The Wedge (yes it is still on Wayne), the song just grabbed me with its funky feel and cool vocals.
