DJ TIMBUCK2 OF CHICAGO RADIO STATION WGCI PASSES AWAY AT 34
Reports say TimBuck2 died from cancer. Before his death, he worked for 107.5 WGCI radio, where he hosted his own mixshow on Saturdays and played an hourlong set during rush hour. But while he was a fixture on Chicago radio for years, he was at first reluctant to take a gig with the station. Before his death, TimBuck2 was also known for showcasing local Chicago acts and for supporting music blogs. "In Chicago, no one ever played Chicago music on the radio and if they did they were the records that people were paying to play, so they were wack." the DJ said in 2012.
