Really great signal into east TX tonight. S9. Clear audio.

Just heard an ID and notice that the station will begin in 3 minutes, followed by some notes on the broadcast mode.

0040 - XFM is now on the air. Montage of clips with Massive Attack's "Angel" backing.
0043 - London Calling by The Clash
Commentary and announcements about heavy music for Halloween, email and phone number given out.
0048 - Stone Sour
0054 - Rob Zombie

Signal has totally dropped out on me here. It literally went from blowtorch to blown out birthday candle in a matter of seconds. Still listening,w aiting for it to come back up.

Nice fadeup at 0118 UTC with ID and noted request "from someone in New Jersey for Black Sabbath"- into War Pigs.  S-9 at fadeup for about a minute, now down into noise again :(

Listening on 6973-- killer het on 6975 at my QTH makes freq unusable here.

Good signal and great tunes!
Was listening on my kaito portable and 50ft random wire, then I had to go back to my house near the am station, now listening on globaltuners.

Was coming in SIO 434 in the Greater Rochester area, New York
Now SIO 534 on http://www.globaltuners.com/receiver/1405/js2

Mind hitting me with a recording, Redhat?

Here is a recording to serve as QSL (https://mega.nz/#!zotXkawD!sEwFAMIst_j_QrlCzAVDrZqgwg9HE4xhItA7vB2Fn2Q), It doesn't sound too good as it it just me holding up a mic to the speaker of my portable... oh well.

Heard here from 0044-0126. Fair signal with moderate-high noise levels and some fades. Heard London Calling, Say You'll Haunt Me by Stonesour, Bang A Gong by T-Rex, and Black Sabbath's War Pigs. Great show!
