If you’ve been listening to radio in San Diego for any of the last 15+ years you probably know Chris Cantore. He’s been one of my favorite radio personalities for years and after his departure from 91X (after 11 freakin’ years) there was pretty much crap on SD morning radio. He’s the quintessential San Diego radio guy: laid-back, knowledgeable and personable. When he re-emerged on KPRi I was stoked…but now the Cantore roller coaster is in a free fall again.
