To put a microphone to the best and most distinctive of Portland. We strive to create a culturally relevant center for ideas, music and creativity in service of a more open media and a more just community.

Bottom Line for Portland

XRAY provides a purpose-driven alternative to mainstream media. Last year, we amplified the voices of 150 Portlanders each week; played music from thousands of artists not included on Top 40 radio; promoted the work of more than 100 local nonprofits; and aired live audio from dozens of community events.

“American democracy is in crisis. As corporate conglomerates take advertising dollars to sell stuff, it’s hard to get the real scoop. XRAY offers opportunities to learn, engage, and make connections to what’s happening locally and around the world.”
