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!

When I first heard my top song of show (in case you didn't know, I start each show by playing the best song I heard since the last show) I thought it might have been a track by The Drums that I had never heard.  But instead it was a great song by a Finnish band called French Films that was actually released back in 2010.  That opened the way for a lot of indie pop songs that I have been meaning to play for a while, as well as a couple of leftover Primavera-related songs.

Best song I heard since the last show -  French Films - Golden Sea
