Ooh, this is a fortuitous catch!  I was out with the radio trying for, and succeeding in catching, Radio Austria.  I scanned a little ways up 49 meters, aiming for Radio Educacion, went a little too far and... ooooooh!  Who's this?  X FM booming in onto the isthmus at roughly 0508Z, with IDs, previous tracks played, e-mail address and details on how to get either an E-QSL or a proper postal one.  Evidently, the DJ's got all this music in his head, and is going to do something about that!  Brother, I know the feeling.  :)  Into an Australian artist whose name I didn't catch, but the track is "Cigarettes".  Then a time check - 0514Z - a 'music to the power of X' slogan along with an ID, and a QTH of somewhere under the stars.  Me too. :D  Then playing a band called Blood Orange.  Loud signal with deep fades, but that could just be living-downtown-itis again.  SIO 534. 

Thanks very much for the show!  I'd happily go the postal QSL route, being that sort of dame, and I don't mind the 6-9 months' wait time.  You admitted it up front, which is more than fair!  Should I throw an e-mailed report at you, or will this do?

That works for me!  If you would like a postal QSL, shoot me an email with your addy and I'll put you in the next mailing.

Thanks for tuning in!

Holy crap it's like you stole my 80s and modern rock playlists!
Great show.

A few more details from the recording I made of XFM's Friday night broadcast...

At 0418 UTC, I heard you read my email and played Traffic "Walking in the Wind", You mentioned the passing of my engineer friend and said "There is no guarantee of tomorrow, so just have fun", which is great advice!
0425, you then mentioned you were "live in Mono" tonight, gave your email again and played B-52's "Planet Claire".

0430 - XFM liner "Music to the power of X"  and Bloodhound Gang - Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo, "XFM Shortwave" and finally, Rammstein's "Radio".

I also sent the above to your email.

Thank you for that, Redhat! That will be awesome to add to my collection. I might just dust off the old Technics cassette deck and make a hard copy I can grab quickly and chuck in the old ghettoblaster!
