Dear Friends, Family, WFMU Listeners, Animal Lovers, and Juggalos,

KENNETH GREEN (aka X.RAY BURNS) and his saintly wife Sharon need your help.  A few months ago, X.Ray was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer and now faces the toughest battle of his life - a battle that has already entailed all kinds of radiation, zapping, slicing and dicing.  And these treatments all cost bucks.  BEAUCOUP BUCKS!

If you know him, you know that Ken is larger than life, so to see him (or hear him on WFMU via The Glen Jones Radio Program) in this state has been difficult these past weeks, but we are keeping the faith like he’d want us to.

In addition to being a freeform radio icon, X.Ray is a huge animal lover, having adopted many unwanted pups over the years and filling his home with sloppy wet kisses, and lots of joyful noise.  He and Sharon also reach out to Kearny, New Jersey’s feral cat population and have found forever homes for many kittens, too.  X.Ray currently serves as “Animal Editor-At-Large” for WEIRD NJ MAGAZINE.

A music fanatic, he has a peculiar penchant for the Insane Clown Posse, and has been to countless Faygo-soaked concerts and Gatherings of the Juggalos.  Each year, he brings this insane happiness to all the men, women and children of Northern New Jersey with his appearances as “Santa Clown”.  It's truly a sight that needs to be seen to be believed.

The donations we are asking for are much needed (and needed fast).  These will help Ken and Sharon cope with the mounting hospital and care bills, both past and future.

We are deeply grateful for any spare bucks you might give to help out someone who’s brought so much joy and nonstop LOLs to so many these past several decades.

With your help your old pal X.Ray can keep fightin’ the good fight.

Help us get the word out, too.  If you can, please share this GoFundMe page on your Facebook timeline or other social media outlets!

Peace out.  IBJ for life.

Friends, fans, freaks -

He’s dead, damnit.

Today X.Ray demonstrated his (maybe) final and (maybe) greatest example of impeccable timing when he opted to shed this mortal coil this afternoon (Sunday 2/10/19) during the "Glen Jones Radio Programme featuring X.Ray Burns." He once said he hoped to kick it while on the air and that, my friends, is exactly what he done did.

The donations and messages have blown away his wife Sharon, his friends and family - so much appreciation, so many tears. You guys are amazing. Be assured that every single cent of those and any future donations is going to help cover the enormous medical bills and arrangements.

The jerk-off can't be replaced. We’ll make sure he won't be forgotten.

Fuck cancer, no lube.
