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!

December 22, 2017

Trying to get through some songs from 2017 during this the last show of the year.  Starting off with yet another great song that I found out from the great website/SIRIUS XMU show Gorilla vs Bear (see his list of the best songs of 2017 linked below) and ending with a funky set.

Best song I heard since the last show: Men I Trust - Tailwhip see the video here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IZKcb3LndA
