i didn't 'get' their show when i first listened. then one time they were discussing the time x-ray shot something off the top of jones' head with a pistol. jones said 'what was i thinking, you could have killed me' and x-ray said 'but i didn't and that made you stronger.' THEN i was hooked. i had to hear more stories.

Todd, nice tribute to X-Ray. Hard to believe that he passed away. Sundays will never be the same. Been listening to those two jerkoffs for so many years.
Avatar 8:18am B/wad:

@dale I hear you. They were a unique duet in the WFMU choir. I grew up on them, volunteering to help out at Jonsey's 100-hour radio broadcast when I was 19 (2001?)
  8:19am Pat Olds:

Beautiful, it was always cool when other DJ’s and such would pass thru the studio during Jonesy’s show. A two minute conversation with Jim Marshall, a couple years ago, floored me. “The Hound” was my first WFMU show. Thanks again

  8:42am Listener Bop Monroe:

i’m just devastated.
not sure how to feel at this moment.
my girlfriend lost her gramma day before my birthday, and i feel awful about that but not like this…
why do i feel even more upset over the loss of X-Ray?
A week or so ago, we lost Jeremy Hardy. look him up.
(a staple of BBC4 Friday nite Comedy & other stuff).
Just still processing that.
Strange how we get to know some one well we never personally met.
Rode my bike to Coney Island for the IBJ broadcast & watched Jonesy strut and shout right in front of me with a 10 seconds delay on my walkman. Never realized how BIG those guys are/were. Scared me in a good way.
Now i’ve lost another of my dearest Radio Friends.
Got to be staying happy but i’m just devastated.

Todd, Joe Belock spoke highly of your Tribute to X Ray, as well as Glen and Therese's, so here I am on the archives. May X Ray Rock On in his inimitable way in the next world that he enters as well as he did on this astral plane...Could we expect any less from such a force of nature ? Condolences to all the FMU family, especially Sharon & Glen. Many of us hurting at this loss. I saw your setlist and was hoping to get through it without getting f*#d up, but when you said it's not only about mourning but about celebrating an amazing life, punctuated by playing the Stones, then I knew I was in the right place.
I had the pleasure to meet Glen & X Ray at a Kill The Holidaze' Party and they both exuded warmth and friendship. I just did a shot out of my IBJ glass and sparked a bowl in X Ray's memory...
  6:38pm lance:

RIP X Ray. One of a kind. Listening to all the old shows. Up to 2009.
  8:13pm Gregory:

My 16 year old Julius was behind the wheel for the first long drive in my car, he had just received his driving permit and together we were out on a Sunday drive.
He has been raised on WFMU and Glenn and X Ray have been a big part of both of our lives.
Over the years we have hung there christmass cards up listen to the show live and countless hours archived. Julius has always been fascinated and a little scared of X Ray, I over heard him telling his friends " There is this guy on the radio that talks about putting a turkey carkus
on his head and he talks about the easter bunny beating up Gllenn's cats."
When Glenn told us all that X Ray passed we drove in silence,I welled up and felt like I lost an old friend.After the ride ended I told him, although I am not a drinking man , I am going to pour some out for a lost brother , Julius said " he would like that."
Avatar 11:01pm jt:

...this is a good tribute, which it turns out I sorely needed. Thanks Todd. I didn't know X Ray but I depended on the fact that he would always be there, and now that just ain't so... I am a different kind of person than X_Ray and Jones but the intimacy of radio , such that it is, got me into very close proximity with these two fellows.... right in my ear. There is so much space: two rivers and a lot off dietary differences political and even our music taste much varied which separates us.. But still, I listened.. each and every Sunday.. I even got my Girlfriend into it, which was weird since all previous g/f's were really not so into the show... I even had problems with X-Ray sometimes... but there it was, a family.. oh, X Ray what will we do w/o you?
Avatar 4:15pm victor89:

Saddened by the news of X-Ray Burns. It's like the loss of a good, beer drinking buddy. The one-of-a-kind, enjoyable Sunday afternoon banter will be missed.
