I'm something you like to share
with someone for whom you care.
Sometimes spicy, sometimes sweet,
Sometimes sweeps you off your feet.
Find me on the FM dial,
Coast to coast across the miles.
You've seen me in my make up
And you can make up with me.
I'm the X's to your O's.
Tell me then - who can I be?

Find me on the FM dial, Coast to coast across the miles.

  • $\begingroup$ Indeed. Title and line 7 are clues you are still missing. Almost there! $\endgroup$ – Rubio Dec 9 '16 at 1:32
  • $\begingroup$ I suspect the clue about finding me on the FM dial refers not to a station, but to the band, which also ties in to the clue about seeing me in my make up. $\endgroup$ – Herb Wolfe Dec 9 '16 at 4:38

    $\begingroup$ As all the hints have been solved now, though spread between comments and @shree.pat18's answer, I'm accepting this answer. $\endgroup$ – Rubio Dec 12 '16 at 0:01
