SINPO=32332(+), with some fluttering QRN, along with broadcast QRM from an adjacent frequency or harmonic.
006- "Ghost Town" by The Specials.
008- Redhat IDs with time check (9 minutes after the witching hour...somewhere east of the Rockies, and west of normal). Looked like propagation was going to be alright. Email address and phone number provided. Playing some new music and some Halloween favorites. Recorded OM ID, into...
012- "Spirits In The Material World" by The Police.
016- Redhat IDs with time check over music, into...
016- "Cosmic Messenger" by Jean-Luc Ponty.

Still a solid signal here, with less noise and QRM gone, SINPO=34333, improved.
023- "Twilight Zone" by Golden Earring.
027- Redhat IDing with time check, then IDs last few songs. Checking out HFU postings. Thanks RH! IDs, into...
031- "Dead Man's Party" by Oingo Boingo (a great 80s tune, featured in the underrated movie "Back To School" with Rodney Dangerfield).

Now SINPO=44433 or better.
214- "Realiti" by Grimes.
217- Recorded OM ID.
217- "Erase/Rewind" by The Cardigans.

SINPO=34333, a bit noisier with quick fades.
234- Redhat IDing with time check and announcing that it's time for us to go, over music. Thank you and goodnight to those of us on HFU (thanks RD!!!)
236- "Look Right Through Me" by Revis.
237- Redhat wishes us happy Halloween, reminding of email address, welcoming posts on HFU and with time check. Announces next tune and see you guys next time, on the other side.
238- "Stripped" by Depeche Mode.
242- Recorded OM ID.
242- OFF.

Thanks as always for the usual high quality production values and great tunes, Redhat!

Not audible out here in the daylight near Seattle, but very good via the Northern Utah SDR ...

0022 UTC: "Twilight Zone" by Golden Earring.
0027 UTC: Redhat with time check, reviewed the just-played songs, and mentioning HFU posts, then "Dead Man's Party" by Oingo Boingo (a fave of mine).
0103 UTC: Been listening the past 35 minutes: Enjoyed the Orkestra Obsolete cover of "Blue Monday," there was a Chvches song in there, and after the 0101 UTC canned ID, "Hands Around My Throat" by Death in Vegas.
0105 UTC: A bit of noise rising on the Northern Utah SDR.

Listening to the shoutouts 0030 UTC. Just tuned in and booming signal into Wisconsin as usual for X-FM on the Tecsun 880.
Nice wideband audio and have my radio bandwidth set for 9kHz. Almost sounds like an FM broadcast, can't even tell it's AM mode heh.

Thanks X-FM for the show! Enjoyed the shoutout.. and at the end of your show too ;D

0238 Stripped - Depeche Mode, good song to end my evening with while in the radio room here.
0242 Off air.

I really hope someone recorded your show tonight and uploads it. The one time I don't have my recording device plugged into my radio go figure lol.
