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!

Smittens - 11:11

March 11, 2011

The entire first set came from a sampler that was put out before the New England Popfest last November, I finally got around to playing some of the great songs that were on it. In particular my top song was done by the Smittens (who of course do the theme to my DJ night at the Jane Bond) and is one of those songs that I had to listen to everyday for about 2 weeks.

And a note about the last song I played, the song "Love Bath" by Smokey Robinson is just as good as you might image a song like this might be. I was quite surprised to learn that the song comes from a release from last year.
