A couple of months back, Jonathan Toubin was sleeping inside his hotel room. Dude’s a beast DJ, claiming to have one of the largest collection of blues/soul/funk 45s, and has traveled the world (even to Jerusalem I think) Dj-ing. Then a moving car flew into his hotel room and gave Jonathan a plethora of fatal injuries.
Please let me know if you hear anything more freak and unlucky than this incident, because it’s a giant what-the-fuck.
Anyway, Jonathan is recovering well, with some amazing doctors and probably the most badass funk mojo to be given.
Jonathan actually came by my radio station about a year ago to promote the 2011 Bruise Cruise. He came through with his huge 45′ cradle, ready to rock out for an hour on-air. Luckily, my friend Manny recorded the entire show, and I pushed him to upload and share it on the internet.
Never been a better time to hear Mr. Toubin doin the damn thang on-air.
