In Memory of DJ Rock Dee

Over the weekend, Milwaukee legend DJ Rock Dee passed away. Chances are, if you don’t know him personally, you knew of him. You probably saw him spin. Maybe heard him on 88.9 Radio Milwaukee. No matter what your connection, it was generally understood that he was a huge, positive force in Milwaukee’s music community, and left behind an enormous group of friends, family, collaborators, students, and admirers.

This Wednesday, August 6 (2pm – 5pm), there will be a Rock Dee Memorial at the Bradford Beach Pavilion. And I’m sure many more tributes, in one way or another, are coming. We’ll try and let you know, as details come to us.

In the meantime, you can head over to 88.9 Radio Milwaukee’s Web site, where they’ve started a tribute page.
