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 urge you to listen to the link below of my top song of the week, it is one of those top songs that I just have to listen to at least once a day. Unfortunately I fell in love with this acoustic version of the song that of course is different than the one on the album, has that ever happened to you? I guess I will have to learn to love them both.

As it turns out, although it wasn't my original intent, the first set worked out as all female singers while the second set was all male.

The soul set I mostly stole from the former CKMS and now CFRU show Central Services where Cory and Trevor did a special feature a few months back called "Spring into soul". I loved so many of the songs, that I just had to put them on the podcast. Find out more about Central Services here: http://www.cfru.ca/showinfo.php?show_id=241

And as a bonus on this one, try and figure out the talking bit when I was out of breath and just barely keeping it together.
