Mini-History of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast:
Mary Nichols (a.k.a. DJ Fusion) is an American Radio, Mixtape & Club/Events DJ who's main musical focus in the Black Music/Urban Music Genre (Hip-Hop, Reggae, Funk, Jazz, R&B/Soul, House, Disco, EDM, Rock, 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 2000 - 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 Jon Pace (aka Ausar Ra Black Hawk; formerly known as Jon Judah) (added on as part of the FuseBox Radio crew in 2004), the FuseBox Radio Broadcast works daily to fulfill that mission and bring great sounds, vibe and content to the masses – ready to represent 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 clean/radio friendly mixshow that has spread to over 25+ international FM & Internet Radio stations and website outlets as of October 2014.
