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!

My first show with new music for a while that started out with a great band that I heard about through the new radio station in Toronto called Indie88, which is definitely the best commercial radio station I have heard in a long time.  The band is named Alvvays and that isn't a mistake, they use 2 "v"s instead of a "w", I assume that is because there is another band named Always (but I haven't been able to find them).  Anyvvays, I saw the band live a few weeks band and they were really good, I hope to hear a proper album or at least some more songs very soon.

Best song I heard since the last show - Alvvays - Adult Diversion - See the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZHPCcFmEjc&noredirect=1
