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 big source of songs that I get for my podcast in general comes from the twitter feed of Indie Pop Saved My Life (see link below).  This show seemed to be a bit heavier on those songs so I thought I would highlight this musical source and recommend it for everyone.

As I didn't recognize my random pick when it came up during the show, I can now say that it came from a great compilation that I picked up this year called Too Slow To Disco (music you can almost dance to).

Best song I heard since the last show - Ariel Pink - Put Your Number On My Phone - See the great video for the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYoQ6WLuMq4
