Live in the X Lounge is a series of albums released by Birmingham, Alabama's former alternative rock radio station, WRAX.[1]

Though the station can no longer be found on the air, this series of live performances was produced while the station was known as 107.7 The X.[1] The station was later renamed and moved to The X @ 100.5, a change prompted by its acquisition by Citadel Broadcasting. Seven albums were produced in all, the last one released in 2004, just a few months before the station was acquired. All discs in the series were sold to benefit United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Birmingham, a group of associations raising money to create awareness and research for cerebral palsy.[1]

The first CD in this series was released in 1998, selling out all 10,000 copies in 10 days.[2] According to Dave Rossi, a former program director of WRAX 107.7 The X, this made the X Lounge the fastest selling CD in Birmingham history, raising just over $135,000.[2] Each release produced several hundred thousand dollars for the organization, with just over $500,000 raised as of the third disc's release date. By the time the seventh disc in the series was released, over 85,000 copies were sold, with the contributions of over 70 bands, raising $1.3 million for UCP of Greater Birmingham.[3] Plans to release an eighth disc were canceled by program director Ken Wall.[1]

All of the Live In the X Lounge CD's were recorded live at Airwave Recording Studio, Homewood, Al. Executive Producer Conrad Rafield, lll. Music Produced and Engineered by Joel Bouchillon.
