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 nice electro-pop start to the show with my top song from a band a know very little about, but I do like their name "Kero Kero Bonito".  That grove continued for the duration of the first set which was then followed by a couple of sets of indie pop.

Best song I heard since the last show - Kero Kero Bonito - Fortune Teller - See the video for the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoG18tMZpS0
