Hearing it here also.

Pulsing music with various voices.  Although signal is more than adequate (S8), I'm having trouble making out more than a few words.  A variety of short voices.  0219 into rock.

0224 ID, talk, taking requests at (408) 800-6925, 0226 TC

Signal good (S8) now ... clear

ID at 0230Z and signal is S7, but a ton of static crashes which drowns it. When the static crashes subside, then X-FM sounds great.
