PIH's Dr. Evan Lyon, second from left, receives a donation on behalf of PIH at WXRT's office in Chicago.

Chicago’s long-time indy rock station WXRT recently raised 25k for both Partners In Health and the Lincoln Park Community Shelter through sales of the compilation CD, "ONXRT: Live from the Archives, vol 13."

The CD features live performances by The Decemberists (Down by the Water); Florence and the Machine (Dog Days are Over); Michael Franti and Spearhead (Say Hey I Love You); Ray Lamontagne and the Pariah Dogs (For the Summer); The New Pornographers (Crash Years); Dawes (When My Time Comes); Gov't Mule (Broke Down on the Brazos); Death Cab for Cutie (Soul Meets Body); Mumford & Sons (The Cave); Fitz and the Tantrums (Moneygrabber); Foster the People (Pumped Up Kicks); The Airborne Toxic Event (Sometime Around Midnight); Amos Lee (Windows are Rolled Down); and, The Black Keys (I Got Mine.)

The tracks for this new CD have been pulled from in-studio performances, live remotes, and XRT-sponsored shows around Chicagoland over the last nine years. None of the versions of these songs can be found anywhere else.

The ONXRT charity CD series began in 1993.
