On December 26, 2019 from 15:22 to 15:36 UTC, with SINPO 54433, at 6,316.70 kHz in AM mode, I listened to the Christmas music program of Christmas Radio

The signal was good and the modulation was good, there was fading and background noise
Weather: sunny with a temperature of 9 ° C
Here are some details that I managed to hear:

15.18 Happy Christmasd(War Is Over)  by Winger
15.22.30 Woman and Man announcer ID as Christmas Radio on Shortwave
15.23 Thank God Its Christmas  by Queen
15.27 It Must Have Been Love  by Roxette
15.31.30 Man announcer for Christmas radio Shortwave, this is the Christmas radio. If you wish to submit a listening report, please send your reports to the freeradiocafe.com radio forum or the HFUnderground.com forum. Thank you."
15.32 Little Red Rooster  by Tom Petty 
15.32.30 signal disappeared ... due to unfavorable propagation

Audio files on my blog

For listening I used the SDR FDM S1 Elad receiver combined with an Intel Core i7-4771 CPU 3.5 Ghz and the SDRSharper v0.3h software while the antenna, is an 18 m Delta-Ewe. perimeter (self-made)

I hope you send me a confirmation QSL / eQSL if the report is correct, I would be very happy to receive it.
