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: My Sentimental Heart
On Air: Frank

I have to thank Mary for my best song of the week, she asked me if I had heard "Sentimental Heart" by She & him, at the time I had not heard of the song but really enjoyed it when I heard it. So much so that I picked up the CD entitled "Volume One" when I saw it in a record store the past weekend. The band consists of M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel but you can listen to the show to find out more about She & him.

When playing the "Let's Ride Mega Mix" by Gonzales I started thinking about what is this year's song of the summer. Although I didn't particularly listen to the song this summer it has the elements of a good summer song with the funky beats and summer vibe.

The last set ended with the band the Stolen Minks (friends of the show) who came on my show last year. This year they are doing a mega 10 week tour across Canada and the US and if you are reading this anywhere in North America the chances are they are going to be playing in your town. Check out their tour schedule here http://www.myspace.com/stolenminks and read their tour blog here: http://thestolenminks.exclaim.ca/

And I ended with a request that I finally played for Paul that he made way back before my last show on CKMS, sorry about being so late.
