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: Give me the green light
On Air: Frank

Uncharacteristically I started this show with a funky set as it went well with my pick for my top song of the week. A few of the songs in that set are a bit long so I hope you can make your way through them. The rest of the show was back to the indie pop sound.

As well as a leftover set from last show's spotlight on the blog Heaven Is Above Your Head, I also played the song "Heaven Is Above My Head" by Louis Philippe that I assume the blog was named after. As coincidence would have it I heard the Philippe song on another podcast last week.

I ended with the song Istanbul (Not Constantinople) by They Might Be Giants in honour of the Toronto Raptors signing free agent Hedo Turkoglu (I stole this idea from Peter).

Also, a note to anybody looking for something to do on the evening of Saturday, July 18th that I'll be DJing live at the Jane Bond Cafe in Waterloo starting at 10 pm. So if you can make it that would be great and as I wanted to have a more "indie-pop" name I'm calling the DJ nights "The coolest thing about love" after the song by the Smittens.
