Mini-History of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Jon Judah:
Mary Nichols (a.k.a. DJ Fusion) is a Radio, Mixtape & Club DJ who's main musical focus in the Black Music/Urban Music Genre (Hip-Hop, Reggae, Funk, Jazz, Soul/R&B, House, Disco, Electronica, Rock, Disco, World Music, etc.), on the independent and mainstream level.
During her collegiate student history at Rutgers University - New Brunswick (B.A., American Studies 2001), she was a part of lining up Hip-Hop oriented shows & events for various student organizations at the school and for various non-profit organizations as well as being one of the original co-founders of the Rutgers University Student Community of Hip-Hop (aka RUSCH, the first Hip-Hop student Organization at Rutgers University) from August 2000 - August 2002.
DJ Fusion began her radio career as an undergraduate student at Rutgers University Radio (WRSU 88.7 FM) first as a co-host for the African New Dawn program under her mentor, Alvin Fair.
Later, she founded the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast in 1998 to be a media outlet that consistently exposes the absolute BEST of Hip-Hop & Soul Music (and the Black Music genre in general) from all over the world along with bringing quality interviews, news, and commentary.
Along with fellow co-host/DJ/Producer/Partner Ausar Ra Black Hawk (added on as part of the FuseBox Radio crew in 2004; formerly known as Jon Judah), the FuseBox Radio Broadcast works daily to fulfill that mission and bring great sounds, vibe and content to the masses – ready to do what high quality Black Radio (not watered down mainstream "Urban Radio") is all about.
From its original roots at Rutgers University Radio, the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast is a 3 hour mixshow that has spread to over 25+ international FM & Internet Radio stations and website outlets as of October 2013.
DJ Fusion also engages in freelance writing for various print & web music and cultural publications (including being a staff member of Planet Ill & Oh Hell Nawl), has been a part of various seminars & music conferences as a knowledgeable expert panelist on the Independent Music Industry (the Slip-N-Slide Records DJ Conference, RapAttackLives.com H.U.S.T.L.E. Conference during New York City's CMJ Music Conference 2004 events, Streets Mos Magazine Music Conference, Hood Hard Day & more), is a part of the Trunk Hustlers (TrunkHustlers20.com) Executive Board and does work as a mixtape & event DJ.
The business FuseBox Media LLC was founded by DJ Fusion & Jon Judah in the mid-2000s to expand on their radio show ventures as well as work with other media extensions (including the official syndicated FuseBox Radio Blog, BlackRadioIsBack.com - an updated re-visioning of our original Exit9HipHop.com site), music production, mixtape hosting and more.
