About DJ Fusion
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, Soul/R&B, House, Disco, Electronica, EDM, Rock, Disco, World Music, etc.), on the independent and mainstream level.
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 (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 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 November 2015.
