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!

Not much to say about this show, lots of really nice indie-pop, I was trying to get a show out before I went to the New York City Popfest which will probably be a major theme of the next show.

Websites I mentioned during the show:

The Maybelines - Wait For You:


Story about the Kamikaze Sex Pilots:


Video of Hot Pants Romance:


First song of the show (best song I heard since the last show):
She & Him - Gonna Get Along Without You Now (See a live performance of the song here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apEQ3mNN6To )
