Exactly one year ago today - September 3rd, 2012 - avid East Bay DJ/music collector, former Amoeba Berkeley employee, and KALX DJ Matthew Africa was killed in a car accident while driving with his wife coming back from Reno, Nevada to their Oakland home. At yesterday's Hiero Day in Oakland, a lot of folks I ran into were thinking of Matthew and recalling this time last year when the shocking news of his death began circulating 'round the Bay. Here is link to an Amoeblog post written at that time that's worth re-reading, Remembering Matthew Africa Through The Music He Loved. The post includes input from many friends touched by this man's life that was fueled by the music he loved so much.
