In and out here along the big muddy river. Thought I heard some sirens for a second there. I'm also catching bits of the reception reports at 00:58.
SIO 322, sometimes worse. Really hoping things get better soon here in the valley...

Larry in Minnesota is making a Halloween video? ID at 01:10.

Tuned in at 0058 and heard ID, e-mail address, greetings to listeners etc.   Good signal in southern Alberta, though I have to keep adjusting the notch filter to get rid of a slowly drifting carrier about 1.9 khz up.

Hearing this beautifully in Nashville! Hell of a show, X-FM! I've never heard this type of signal strength in a USB, Much less an AM signal. Keep on rocking, guys, now here's a formal reception report.

Frequency: 6960 KHz or 6.960 MHz
Location of Receiving: Nashville, TN
Listening Time Range: 050 UTC to 104 UTC   (7:50 PM - 8:04 PM Central)
Quality: About S8+
SINPO: 42455
Broadcast Specifics:
0055 X-FM ID, OP stutters something, Calls it a "Tongue Twister"
0056: Music to the power of X
0058: Signal dropped to about S4, Having trouble ID'ing the song.
0104 - Stepperwolfe- PusherMan
Will keep this updated, But thanks for the show, it surely made my college homework filled night MUCH more enjoyable.

Here is a Vocaroo link with a recording of the broadcast: http://vocaroo.com/i/s0fmf6f0f1Ez
An eQSL to the email below would be greatly appreciated.
