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!

Another top song I got from listening to satellite radio, I don't know much about the band Sales, but damn that song is good.  After two sets of indie pop I did a long overdue funky set, including the song Forget Me Nots by Patrice Rushen which, as well as being yet another song from satellite radio, is a song I keep hearing around.  Strange as the song was released 1982.

Best song I heard since the last show - Sales - Chinese New Year - Listen to the song here: https://soundcloud.com/sales/chinese-new-year
