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!

A special podcast where I played music that I heard at this year's edition of the New York Popfest.  This year had only heard of a few of the bands that played, but as always Maz brought together a great collection of music that made it well worth the trip.  During the podcast I talk mostly about the bands I saw, but also a little bit about the people I met and the other things I did in New York City that weekend.

Best song I heard since the last show - Popguns - Waiting For The Winter - See them perform it live at NYCPopfest 2014  here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smXNCMumum4
