We Owe Some of You a Thank You

Amongst these beautiful faces are some of Portland’s most dedicated stewards and cultural mavericks. They encapsulate this city’s inherent call for communal cooperation, and honest dedication to all things just. We’d be more of a skeleton than we actually are without their generous contributions. For without them, we wouldn’t be able to hold a mic up to the community they all serve.

We’re small yet mighty, just like you. Everyone here at XRAY wants to thank you for your sponsorship. Your partnership keeps our community of musicians, artists, and free thinkers alive. However, don’t feel pressured to keep those poinsettias alive. We know they’re not indigenous to the Northwest, let alone the Northern Hemisphere. The important thing is that they smell nice. Kind of like you.


Alberta Street Co-Op,

We consider you one of the premier aggregates for locally sourced food. So thank you for that, and also for supporting so many other rad organizations.





Atlas Tatoo,

We know the ink you use cures mortality. Thank you for the sponsorship but we want in on some of this Tuck Everlasting action.




Beech Street Parlor,

Thank you, for your generous contribution and the lovely Victorian atmosphere. The dim lighting and period appropriate furniture make us feel like French philosophers on the verge of a groundbreaking paradigm shift.




Beth Earnest Real Estate & Associates,

You guys are rock stars! Thank you so much for supporting us. Your generosity lives inside the tiny studio apartment that is our heart, rent-free of course.




Brass Tacks,

Your support tastes as good as the puns on your meat menu. Thanks for “Turkeying” your love to the limit (someone is getting fired for this).
“Brass Tacks Supports X-Ray Fm for helping to maintain the sense of identity and uniqueness in Portland that lets quirky little sandwich shops do their thing.  Thanks for keeping Portland a relevant place for music and openness, thanks X-ray!” — Ami Taylor, Brass Tacks Sandwiches

You already provide such a great space for music and killer food. We have much to learn from your radness, Senpai, thank you!







Five Points Coffee Roasters,

Thanks for showing your support in addition to that delicious life juice you brew.



Control Voltage,

Thank you for the sponsorship and for the DIY synth kits. They have made us immune to electric shock.

– We see you, Jason of Control Voltage

Dean’s Car Repair,

Dean, you sexy grease monkey of a man. Thank you for supporting another awesome local organization. You’re more reliable than a ’86 Honda Civic hatchback with a custom boxer engine.




Floating World Comics,

Thank you for all that you do for us and the community as a whole! You publish some rad stuff guys, keep it up!

Stay fresh, stay crisp, fresh produce is a way of life. Thank you guys!





Fried Egg I’m In Love,

What is love without a fried egg and a nice big thank you from XRAY? Now, do you want this thank you scrambled or sunny side up?

Hoesly Eco Automotive,

Thank you for keeping those cars running so people can listen to us on the air!

We’ve got no clue what we’re going to do with all this shredded cheese.  Thanks for being a badass sponsor in addition to the 350 pounds of shredded provolone. 






B-Line Delivery, 

 Your help was very much appreciated! Let’s set up a time and place for a bicycle drag race, winner goes home with pink slips.  









Taboo Video,

Thank you for your sponsorship and for keeping Portland a sex-positive city! You are an angel, Taboo.  








Morel Ink,

Thanks for helping us get our name out there guys! Our swag game would be as bland as a Rob Schneider sequel without your expertise.

Thank you for helping us grow. We know it’s kind of your thing.





Potato Champion,

Canada gave the world Poutine, Mexico their Tecate. You have blessed us with both plus a kickass sponsorship. Thank you!

Potato Champion supports Xray.fm because:

  1.  Radio is a crucial part of our community.
  2.  Corporate radio is the WORST.
  3.  Xray.fm has quite a few shows that play music you will hear nowhere else.

— Mike McKinnon, Potato Champion
