Fireball XL5 is the name of an indie-pop show hosted by Frank Seglenieks. I play alternative music that usually classified as indie-pop with the occasional feature on a particular artist or theme as well as discussions on pop culture topics of the day. I start off each show with the best song that I have heard since the last
show .

    After many years of doing this podcast using the name Fireball XL5 I have decided to change the name to the one I use for my DJ nights: The Coolest Thing About Love I feel this better represents the type of music I play and be assured that the show will continue to feature the best recent indie pop that I can find, along with some ventures into funk and soul as usual. So please come on over to thecoolestthingaboutlove.ca where the Itunes link is working along with a way to get an email everytime I release a new podcast.

    Lots of great indie pop, but of course as of late I have been focusing on more of the electro side of the equation starting with my top song from Anna of the North (I still can't figure out where exactly she is from). Best song I heard since the last show: Anna Of The North - Someone, see the video for the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuccTS0xLtc Links from the show: Remind yourself of my best songs of 2014 (including the Silent Love): http://fireballxl5podcast.blogspot.ca/2014/12/best-singles-of-2014.html You can download the latest show directly here: http://trepid.org/TCTAL/2017-07-21_final.mp3 For information on how to sign up for the podcast or join the Facebook group, see the bottom of this message.

    Three sets of differing music, I stole a lot of the music for the first electro set from from the great Satellite radio show/music blog Gorilla vs. Bear, then was a bit more an indie pop set, which was followed by a pure funk set.  All in all I think it was a good show. Best song I heard since the last show: Forever - Falling, see the video for the song here: http://www.gorillavsbear.net/video-premiere-forever-falling/ Links from the show: Get more information about Gorilla vs. Bear here: http://www.gorillavsbear.net/ And from Gorilla vs. Bear find out more about Blue Hawaii: http://www.gorillavsbear.net/jacques-greene-x-gorilla-vs-bear-takeover-blue-hawaii-interview/ You can download the latest show directly here: http://trepid.org/TCTAL/2017-08-25_final.mp3 For information on how to sign up for the podcast or join the Facebook group, see the bottom of this message.
