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!

I started the show with a song from the most recent release of the Waterloo band Bocce, their sound has really matured since their last release and I encourage everyone to go to their website (listed below), download their album, and if you like it support the boys with a donation.

This past week I was looking at clearing some space from a computer and found a directory where I once downloaded the entire content of the famous C86 cassette compilation from the New Music Express (NME). It came out in 1986 and featured some of the best indie-pop bands of the time. I sprinkled the show with songs from the compilation and I was amazed at how well the songs stand the test time after almost 25 years. You can find out more about C86 here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C86_%28music%29 .

Websites I mentioned during the show:

Information about the compilation If You Like Everything There's Nothing Left To Love:
