Tuned in at 0158 UTC via the Northern Utah SDR. This frequency is the strongest at that location among the three X-FM relays this evening. Here near pre-sunset Seattle, only a trace of the signal is being heard ...

0158: "Dear Life" by Beck.
0200: Canned ID, then "Black Summer" by Red Hot Chili Peppers.
0204: Canned X-FM ID, then a quick female-voiced MRI ID, then "The Hardest Cut" by Spoon.
0207: Canned ID into "Beguiled" by The Smashing Pumpkins.
0211: Redhat on mic reviewing the previously played songs, talking about this summer and the murder rate, and making shout-outs to HFU folks.
0218: Canned ID and MRI ID into "Hurricane" by Cannons.

Stepped away for a bit ... now listening via the Weiser, Idaho, SDR. Still no audio heard at my location.
0228: "Blur" by M0 + Foster the People.
0229: Canned ID, very clear MRI ID, then "Dissolve" by Absofacto.
0233: Redhat back on mic mentioning previous songs, reading HFU posts, and talking about radio.
0238: X-FM and MRI IDs into "What Do I Have to Do?" by Stabbing Westward.
0242: "If You Could Only See" by Tonic.
0247: X-FM and MRI IDs into "On My Knees" by Rufus du Sol.

Thanks for the music, Redhat!
