Last week, we got the sad news that Steve West lost his long battle with cancer. Throughout the week, several radio luminaries took to the airwaves in tribute and to honor his legacy. You can listen to a 91X tribute with Marty & Danielle here and with Hilary and Halloran here. On Sunday, ALT949 will be running a Legends of the Alternative tribute from 6-10am. At the very same time, 91X will be running a special episode or Resurrection Sunday which will be accompanied online with a live Zoom and Facebook Live feed, so fans can chat and share memories. More info from 91X after the jump. Also, take the time to read George Varga's long-form obituary in the U-T if you can get past the paywall and check out Yew!'s podcast.

Sunday morning from 6:00 to 10:00 AM (PST), 91X will pay tribute to Steve West, the local radio veteran and longtime member of 91X.  West passed away Monday at age 68 after a long battle with cancer.

Host Garett Michaels will dedicate the special episode of “Resurrection Sunday” to West, joined by 91X staff past and present including Michael Halloran, “Mad Max” Tolkoff, Katy Manor, Billy Bones, Tom Perry and additional guests and friends.

“Resurrection Sunday” is 91X’s long-running weekly program dedicated to the cutting edge artists that defined the station’s early years.

“Steve West is a San Diego radio legend, known for his distinct voice, encyclopedic music knowledge, infectious positivity and passionate dedication to his listeners,” said 91X Program Director and “Resurrection Sunday” host Garett Michaels.  “His influence on, and legacy at 91X will never be forgotten.  I invite all 91X listeners here in San Diego, around the country and all over the world to join us in remembering and celebrating Steve.”
