Sunday Will Never Be the Same

We are heartbroken to share the news that X.Ray Burns, longtime co-host of The Glen Jones Radio Programme featuring X.Ray Burns on Sunday afternoons, has passed away. A wake for X. Ray will be held at the Thiele-Reid Family Funeral Home, 585 Belgrove Drive, in Kearny, NJ, on Thursday, Feb. 14th from 4pm – 9pm and is open to anyone who would like to pay their respects. There will also be a memorial service for X. Ray at Monty Hall in the near future. Date and time will be announced soon. Before he passed, X. Ray ran up a lot of medical bills, and there is a GoFundMe to help his wife deal with these huge costs. If you can help, please do.
