TOOTS!

When I’m not at Murfie HQ, I host a radio show called U-Dub¬†on Wednesday nights on 91.7FM WSUM-Madison. Being a reggae DJ has given me great opportunities that mean a lot to me, and I love every second of it.

This past weekend I had a particularly wonderful experience! Toots & the Maytals came to town for a show, and I was lucky enough to meet Toots Hibbert, a living legend, after the show.

Toots is widely known as the “Grandfather of Reggae.” With his 1960s hit song “Do the Reggae,” he was actually responsible for giving the genre its name! You may have heard songs like “54-46 That’s My Number” and “Pressure Drop,” among many others.

Toots was so nice! He gave me a hug right away, and he has the happiest smile you will ever see! I had a little chat with him for my radio show, and if you want you can listen in this Wednesday at 7pm Central time.

In the above photo, that’s me and Toots after the show. Fierce, right?!
