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.
