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!

I have to thank someone I met during the Belle and Sebastian video for my top song this podcast.  Malcolm (one of the background dancers in the video) shared a link to the band Got a Girl which I listened to and thought was great.  Made all the better because it features Mary Elizabeth Winstead who was Ramona Flowers in the Scott Pilgrim movie and I think that's all that needs to be said about that.  See more about the band in the links below.

Best song I heard since the last show - Got a Girl - Did We Live Too Fast - See the video for the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lKh8OoMPjU
