This site is dedicated to Tim Jones.
WGCI-FM/107.5WGCI longtime mixer/host DJ Timbuck2 has passed away from cancer at the too-young age of 34. Although the news was not made public, the DJ had been quietly battling cancer for some time.

Chicago native Tim Jones became a top club DJ named DJ Timbuck2 while still a teenager in the mid-1990s. He followed in the footsteps of his older brother, producer/DJ Twilite Tone. If fact it was his brother that gave Tim the stage name of Timbuck2.

After achieving some degree of notoriety around Chicago clubs for his talents as a DJ, radio came calling for him... literally. In 2004, WGCI-FM's then-Program Director Elroy Smith, along with the station's then-Music Director Tiffany Green called Timbuck2 on the phone. It took many calls, but they eventually convinced him to become a mixer for their radio station, where he has been ever since.

Upon his hiring, Timbuck2 had become the youngest mix show DJ and on-air host in the station's history.

On WGCI-FM, Timbuck2 could be heard most weekdays at 5:00pm with a long "Rush Hour" mix, as well as host his own mix show, "Go iLL Radio" on Saturday nights, where he would focus on playing Chicago and Illinois Hip-Hop artists.

In 2009, VH1's Hip Hop Honors named DJ Timbuck2 the country's best Hip-Hop DJ.
