San Diego's 106.5 KPRI was a legendary Rock station in San Diego, California.  They began a full-time Progressive Rock format starting in 1968 and, in 1973, became the first station to describe themselves as an "Album Oriented Rock" station.  KPRI lasted until early 1984 when they succumbed to the ratings success of rival KGB-FM.

The KPRI call letters returned to San Diego in 2002 at 102.1 FM and continued the Adult Album Alternative format they had under previous calls KXST.  The independently owned station was sold  to Religious broadcaster Educational Media Foundation and flipped to yet another Contemporary Christian K-LOVE affiliate.  KPRI was licensed to Encinitas, California.
