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!

September 9, 2011

It was a funky start to this show all stemming from the top song, Erik Hassle's Hurtful, which turns out to be a song from a few years ago that was recently made a free download on Amazon that caused its resurgence.  I found out about it from the great popcasting podcast ( http://popcastingpop.com/ ).

The next set consitsted of recent indie-popular songs that I discovered through satellite radio when my rental car was upgraded.  There are a couple of great satellite radio stations that play indie pop and at one point they were both playing The Cults, that was a sign that I had to play them at my DJ night at the Jane Bond (details here: http://thecoolestthingaboutlove.blogspot.com/ ) as well as on the podcast.

The last set were a bunch of songs that I have been listening to forever on my MP3 player and finally had a chance to get them out.  The Random Ending song, randomly chosen from my music collection, was Sloan's Everything You've Done Wrong, still my favourite Sloan song.
