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: Very Random
On Air: Frank

This was pretty much a random show with a poppy set, rockin' set, laid back set, funky set, and even a failed set.

I'll just talk about the failed set, ahh the magic of live radio. I played the song Twee by Tullycraft and then had the idea to play songs by the bands that are mentioned in the song. Of course I didn't do any pre-show planning so I was hoping to grab the songs while I was there, but nothing worked out, I couldn't find any of the music either at the station or even on the web. So instead of my usually 5 or 6 song set I only managed to find 2 of the artists mentioned in the song and I just decided to quit the set rather than struggle on.

On a side note, one of the bands I did play was the Posies who happened to be playing their 20th anniversary show when I was in Seattle last week, I didn't go, but I saw it listed.
