(May 18, 2020, San Diego, CA) Due to overwhelming demand, yesterday’s entire episode of Resurrection Sunday on 91X, the tribute to Steve West, is now available to stream on the station’s website.
The four-hour guest-filled show celebrated the beloved and legendary San Diego broadcaster who passed away last week at age 68.
The tribute first aired live at the programs usual time, 6:00 to 10:00AM, and was rebroadcast on 91X that evening from 6:00 to 10:00PM. The decision to post the full program at 91x.com was made due to the many West fans who were unable to hear the entire program, or want to enjoy it again.
Host Garett Michaels was joined by Michael Halloran and special guests including former 91X staffers “Mad Max” Tolkoff, Katy Manor, Billy Bones, Tom Perry, Dred Scott, as well as artists close to West including Dave Wakeling of The English Beat, Cy Curnin of The Fixx, Mike Peters of The Alarm, John Easdale of Dramarama and Johnny Vatos of Oingo Boingo. Richard Blade of SiriusXM’s First Wave and formerly KROQ in Los Angeles also called in to pay tribute.
“It was an honor to share the airwaves with my friend Michael Halloran to celebrate Steve West on yesterday’s edition of Resurrection Sunday,” said Michaels. “The tributes and memories of Steve from his fellow 91X family members and the artists he liked to play are a testament to how much he was truly loved and admired. For all of Steve’s fans who may have missed our tribute, I am pleased that we are able to make the audio available to stream on demand. Steve’s influence and legacy at 91X will never be forgotten.”
Resurrection Sunday is 91X’s weekly program dedicated to the cutting edge artists that defined the station’s early years.
