91X Celebrates 28 Years with a Resurrection Weekend

91X has seen its ups and downs over the years, with management changes and programming tweaks, the station known as "The Cutting Edge of Rock" that defined our formative years perhaps lost its way when they got sucked into the radio conglomerate, but the station has recently made efforts to get back from where they might've strayed and this weekend, they're bringing back many of the personalities that developed 91X. Obviously they can't have personalities like Cantore or Jen White who have found success at other stations around town, but they're bringing back some of our favorites, including Lou Niles' return to Loudspeaker on Sunday.

In advance of its 28th birthday on January 11, San Diego’s heritage alternative rock station 91X will celebrate with a “Resurrection Weekend,” bringing back many of the voices that have defined the station’s storied history.

Mike Halloran will return to the 91X studio to kick off the Resurrection Weekend tomorrow at 2:00 PM. Other former 91X DJ’s returning on-air include “Mad Max” Tolkoff, Billy Bones, Chris Muckley, and Dred Scott as well as current 91X DJ’s Robin Roth, Oz Medina and Steve West. The weekend on-air schedule is as follows:
