Late to the show tonight but catching X-FM here too but rough copy at the moment.  A lot of deep long fades.

Off rather abruptly mid-song at 0309 UTC during the end of the Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony".

Same as KK7 here. Just hearing RH's voice and ID at 0225z over my S7 noise  :-\. Seems to be improving.

...improving enough to hear Robert Plant - Big Log at 0240z. Great song.

coming it quite well here in Central Alberta dispute the noise pulse which plagues this frequency at my QTH.
Caught a nice ID @ 02:32 for "Music sounds best on  X-FM Shortwave "
Great Program ..thumbs up !!!

I tuned in late but had the SDR recording and the signal was much better earlier in the evening.  Here's a wideband stereo recording from 0106-0140 UTC.  Conditions here took a dive after 0140, thus the short recording:

6975_kHz_X-FM_C-QUAM_STEREO_0106-0140_UTC_28DE14.mp3

Thanks for the show!

Thanks for the recording Kilokat7.  I also received a short stereo clip from a guy in Madison, WI listening on a NRD-545.

Thank you all for the posts, I will be working on some of the QSL's this weekend.
