Some sad news… We are very saddened to report that CHRS Life Member and friend of many, Jerry Cantou passed away unexpectedly yesterday. A long time radio enthusiast, Jerry was very active in CHRS and the Southern California Antique Radio SocietySCARS. For those of us who knew Jerry, we knew that under that gruff exterior was a generous and big hearted man. Although we didn’t always see eye to eye, Jerry was one of our best volunteers who tirelessly donated hundreds of hours of his time to CHRS. We will miss you Jerry. Rest in Peace…
