Very nice audio via NATVC SDR in Burke, Virginia, as of 2350 UTC.

I checked the SDR close to me near Seattle and the Northern Utah one, and this signal's not making it anywhere out west right now.

Checked back in at 0240 UTC and found a fair signal on the SDR down the road from me in Machias, Washington, and an audible signal directly on my own radio. Still sounds good!

SINPO=44444, coming in strong!

040- "Girl From Ipanema" jazzy instrumental.
042- OM "Best Smooth Jazz" UK announcer.
042- Instrumental smooth jazz.

047- Upbeat disco sounding smooth jazz.
048- YL synthesized voice "This is Mix Radio International, Worldwide" over music.
051- YL synthesized voice Mix Radio strives to bring you the best music. IDs Smooth Jazz show with Rod Lucas from London, over music.
051- Rapid Spanish style song in instrumental jazz style.
052- OM and YL DJs talk about COVID social distancing but BBQs soon. Mentions "Caribbean Dreams." Mentions listeners to RMI shortwave, and reception reports New Zealand, NY, etc. RMI broadcasting "some times of the day and night." Thanks for emailing listeners.
056- Jazz tune with brass instrumentals.
059- OM DJ mentions "Alexa, play me....Gets a bit groovy there...Frank Albertson...Next is more mellow." Worries the YL DJ is smiling at him.
100- Jazz tune with slower, funky sound.

By 115- Some Ute QRM encroaching a bit (CW, RTTY, etc). Still a very strong signal.

By 203- Signal stronger than ever and Ute QRM cleared up. Funky modern jazz with trumpet solos.
207- OM and YL DJs talk about acoustic alchemy, then into more jazz.
211- OM IDs as Rod Lucas, with more smooth jazz out of the UK.
212- YL synthesized voice "The Hottest Sound on Mix Radio International," then into "Get Down On It" by Kool and the Gang (a largely instrumental dance remix version). At 215- recorded OM "Rod Lucas, there's really nothing like it."
215- OM DJ IDs, gives email and website for Best Smooth Jazz, including Twitch, commenting on that.
216- YL synthesized voice IDs MRI, then into more instrumental jazz.
Signal just not giving up, super strong and clear.

Hearing this relay at 0101+ via the remote site at VE6JY antenna farm with a nice signal, s-reading at  nice s7 to s8 on the Wellbrook loop, as well, on the DKAZ loop towards  Europe, with the same s-reading.
Really a enjoyment to hear stations making it out here into Alberta !!

To Mix Radio, thank you for the show....
