This is a flashback episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast that was originally broadcast on the week of October 27, 2010 with various new and classic Hip-Hop & Soul Music, news and commentary. This week's show commentary focused on the firing of journalist Juan Williams from NPR & it's meaning (if anything), new release of Iraq & Afghanistan war documents by Wikileaks & it's meaning, passing of Harlem Hip-Hop mainstay Huddy 6, reggae music legend Gregory Isaacs, some weird news in the world of elections here in the United States and some other things here and there. We had also great extended FuseBox Radio/BlackRadioIsBack.com interview we had this week with drummer, songwriter and producer Will Calhoun (of the classic Rock Band Living Colour). Some of the things we talked about included his background in the Bronx, his various musical influences, how labels have split up the music scene way too much (including the terms "Black Rock", "Black Music" etc.), his current and future music projects both on the solo tip & with Living Colour, some rather bugged out occurrences he had in the music industry, the importance of cultural ties in the creation of music and a lot of other cool things! Check out more of what's going on with him at his official website, http://www.WillCalhoun.com. We have brand new Black Agenda Report and Direct EFX segments on this week's show.

After a bit of a mini-hiatus due to 9 to 5 action on both of our ends, winter vacation, FuseBox Radio outside business (lots of mini-music episodes and more dropping shortly post-website revamp!) and more, we're back with a talk-based mini-episode about what we've been up to lately, DJ Fusion's reflections on turning 40, the f*ckery of the government shutdown here in the States (from it's effects on regular people to just how completely stupid & unnecessary it is in the first damned place), the first few parts of the "Surviving R. Kelly" documentary on Lifetime TV & the responses about it (from common sense to straight "What The F*ck" stuff with deflection from various corners) due it's topics of sexual abuse on Black children and Black Women, recent TV and movies that we've seen (some Netflix biz, "Aquaman" in 4DX, "Into the Spiderverse" and more) with some other scattered topics here and there. ___ Official FuseBox Radio Broadcast Website: http://www.FuseBoxRadio.com Official FuseBox Radio Broadcast Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/FuseBoxRadioShow

This is a flashback episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Jon Judah for the weeks of July 25 & August 1, 2018 (originally broadcast on the Week of March 30, 2011) with some new and classic Hip-Hop & Soul Music, news and commentary. Our commentary during that week touched base on updates with the after effects of the earthquake + tsunami in Japan, the recent U.N. intervention in Libya news, the possible upcoming U.S. government shutdown due to budget issues and why it's just ridiculous how politicians are dragging this along, the re-birth of the "Birther" fake controversy with President Barack Obama and some other diverse topics here and there. We also had a great interview with Forbes magazine staff writer Zack O'Malley Greenburg about the creative inspiration, work & drama behind his latest book, "Empire State of Mind: How Jay-Z Went From Street Corner to Corner Office". Book Summary: Empire State of Mind tells the story behind Jay-Z’s rise to the top as told by the people who lived it with him–from classmates at Brooklyn’s George Westinghouse High School; to the childhood friend who got him into the drug trade; to the DJ who convinced him to stop dealing and focus on music. This book explains just how Jay-Z propelled himself from the bleak streets of Brooklyn to the heights of the business world. Zack O’Malley Greenburg draws on his one-on-one interviews with hip-hop luminaries such as DJ Clark Kent, Questlove of The Roots, Damon Dash, Fred “Fab 5 Freddy” Brathwaite, MC Serch; NBA stars Jamal Crawford and Sebastian Telfair; and recording industry executives including Craig Kallman, CEO of Atlantic Records, to paint a tantalizing portrait of a very private mogul. Greenburg also reveals new information on Jay-Z’s various business dealings, such as: * The feature movie about Jay-Z and his first basketball team that was filmed by Fab 5 Freddy in 2003 but never released. * The Jay-Z branded Jeep that was scrapped just before going into production. * The real story behind his association with Armand de Brignac champagne. * The financial ramifications of his marriage to Beyonce. _________ Official FuseBox Radio Broadcast Website: http://www.FuseBoxRadio.com Official FuseBox Radio Broadcast Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/FuseBoxRadioShow FuseBox Radio Playlist for the Weeks of July 25 & August 1, 2018 [originally broadcast on March 30, 2011] Top Spins (Music Still Lasting in Rotation/Music Played Live on Air Each Week/As Well As Music Requested By The Listeners) 1.

That week's show commentary focused on a whole range of things, from how folks feel about the need and relevancy of a "Black Agenda" in U.S. politics (especially in the eyes of some, with a man of Black descent in office), the latest situation in Australia with the treatment of the Aborigines, how quality R&B represented in the recent Billboard charts with Sade & Jaheim's sales numbers and some other things here and there.

This is the latest & BRAND NEW special episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Ausar Ra Black Hawk for the weeks of May 2 & 9, 2018 where due to a pretty hectic news week we decided to drop a quick commentary show before the official full-length episode of music and tunes. Some of the things we touched base on included: * recent updates on the insanity related to the Universal FanCon cancellation * Kanye West's latest PR antics (from the entire TMZ "slavery is a choice" debacle, Twitter political foolery, his lazy contrarianism with "free thought", etc.), his playing a VERY dangerous game with these latest moves and the various kinds of blowback * Bill Cosby finally being found guilty in a court of law for indecent assault * the aspect that various celebrities on multiple levels play on one's empathy with a community - based on race, cultural commonalities, etc. - to keep doing f*ckery with various ways of behavior on small and large levels so that they can hold onto fame, get sales, etc. * the sexism involved with how some celebrities can get away with certain behaviors and others cannot * how lack of historical context - distant past to recent - with how to view the world & minimal desire to learn on one's own is VERY dangerous * the disturbing amount of folks can't admit that their favorite famous folks are human and f*ck up, no matter how great their art, philosophies, etc. are to the point of defending EVERYTHING they do to the point of idolatry (ex. Black folks literally debating slavery and how folks could've gotten out of it due to what Kanye West said) * how folks felt about the Childish Gambino "This Is America" music video and song * various TV folks have watched lately (including CW's "Black Lightening") * various news stories of note (including the young Black ladies who entered a NASA contest and got racists mad online; the Native American students who were discriminated against at Colorado State University during a college tour and then some) * our mini-reviews of Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War" (full of spoilers) * And more!

This is a straight up commentary episode of the FuseBox Radio Broadcast where DJ Fusion & The Black Hawk talked about the news story about actress & comedian Leslie Jones' frustration about dating (especially feeling like there is no point to it & getting discouraged) and how it related to our personal lives & interactions, how other heads can go through it at large on that end regardless of looks, employment, class, etc., the f*ckery of false, stoic "strength" when dealing with someone else's crap in a romantic relationship as a Black person (and person in general), the casual cruelty with other folks' judgement of one's worthiness for a relationship, how folks reacted to Leslie Jones' feelings on the Internet (some not very well at ALL), how men & women deal with crap of weirdly fluctuating expectations, dealing with folks bullsh*t in a healthy way after they say you're not worthy of a relationship and more.

During that week, we had a great interview with author Douglas A. Blackmon for his book, "Slavery By Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II" (now currently out on Doubleday Books), which "brings to light one of the most shameful chapters in American history—when a cynical new form of slavery was resurrected from the ashes of the Civil War and re-imposed on hundreds of thousands of African-Americans until the dawn of World War II" by throwing Black Men, Women and Children into prison in the South for labor purposes under false pretenses to be arrested.

This is a special episode based off of the audio from this year's great DC PodFest panel on diversity in podcasting ("Not All Podcasters Are White") that occurred at the Wonderbread Factory in Washington, DC on Saturday, November 11, 2017 featuring DJ Fusion (FuseBox Radio Broadcast; http://www.FuseBoxRadio.com), Ebone Bell (Tagg Nation; http://www.TaggNation.com), Morgan Givens (Dispatches; http://www.goatrodeodc.com/dispatches) & Charneil Bush (What About Your Friends; https://soundcloud.com/what-about-your-friends) talking candidly about their experiences as Podcasters of Color on multiple fronts (folks' trying to put what you talk about on your show in a box from the outside community - and sometimes your own - in the realms of race, class, sexuality, etc., how everyone got started with podcasting, the hustle one has to be on to be a quality indie media outlet at large, what IS diversity honestly, how to deal with people trying to push back against your viewpoints & expressing them and more).

Our commentary during that week (it takes up the 1st half of the radio show; stops at about 1 hour & 25 minutes in) touched base on the travesty of the grand jury's verdict in Ferguson, MO with the killing of Michael Brown & it's after effects (the very tilted mainstream media coverage here in the States post-verdict, racists & respectability politics folks coming out from multiple angles, how it has resparked activism all over the U.S. and more), the new & old charges of sexual assault against actor Bill Cosby, some quick pop culture news items of interest (including Marvel Comics dropping a "Black Panther" movie in the upcoming future) and some other things here & there.

Presently, with the current “interesting” presidential election cycle (to say the least) here in the United States at the moment, one is more aware than ever of the imbalance in how 3rd parties are looked at in our current political system in terms of exposure by mainstream media outlets, if they even get any attention at all. The FuseBox Radio’s 2016 Presidential Candidate Interview Sessions were avialble to assist with educating voters a bit of information about various political parties & their viewpoints beyond the Democrat/Republican binary with what they stand for straight from the source. We talked about what exactly IS a socialist from Ms. Moorehead's viewpoint and how she decided to become deeply & personally involved with politics & the Workers World Party during college at Norfolk State in the 1970s, the WWP's platform (in regards to education, health care, the legal system & more), how change needs to happen from local levels on up (in the ballot box and on the streets), the current 2 party political landscape presidential candidacy shenanigans, how folks have been responding to their campaign (especially since socialism has been slandered with misinformation via various places), the difference between Democratic Socialism and Socialism, why there is such an imbalance with 3rd party political candidates getting on the ballot in various states on multiple levels and lots more!

Enjoy the flashback goodness of music and editorial from that time!! During that week's episode of the FuseBox Radio Broadcast, DJ Fusion interviewed St. Louis, MO based journalist, music technologist and more, B-Gyrl of HandsUpDontShoot.com, STLHipHop.com, "The Final Call" and more with some in-depth talk about the state of Black America (and really, America at large) post-Ferguson and the murder of Michael Brown by law enforcement almost 2 years later. We talked about on the beginnings of the grassroots movements that had Michael Brown's death come to national & international attention in the 1st place, the unfortunate rise and/or usage of Civil Rights Hustlers by mainstream America to engage in revisionist history of the grassroots movements that got Ferguson on a national level in the first place and who seemingly benefit from Black Pain almost immediately afterwards, the lack of constructive critique within our own community with various leaders/"leaders" of Black movements (especially when it came in regards to monetary donations & where they would end up going to that where supposed assist various local areas & issues) and some ideas of how overall we can hopefully make things better in this country in regards to dealing with issues of race, class and more overall. We also talked about some other things, including with the current political climate on local & national levels (especially with the twisted sideshow that is the current U.S. presidential nomination cycle from ALL parties, from Donald Trump's rise in the G.O.P. to the Democratic Party acting like the Black American Vote is supposed to be guaranteed & not fought for), Kanye West, some random music industry related advice and more!

Introduction Song: A Tribe Called Quest - Youthful Expression (Jive Records) During this vacation week, folks decided to post up a few of our most popular shows of 2016 from the FuseBox Radio Broadcast. Our most downloaded & streamed episodes was our special broadcast where DJ Fusion interviewed Emidio "Mimi" Soltysik & Angela Nicole Walker, the presidential and vice-presidential candidates for the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election for the Socialist Party USA. Our “interesting” presidential election cycle (to say the least) here in the United States during the past year had people look at the balance in how 3rd parties are looked at in our current political system in terms of exposure by mainstream media outlets, if they even get any attention at all on ANY level - local, state, national, etc.. The FuseBox Radio’s 2016 Presidential Candidate Interview Sessions were put out there to assist with educating voters a bit of information about various political parties beyond the Democrat/Republican binary with what they stand for straight from the source. During our in depth interview, we talked about what exactly IS a socialist, how Emidio & Angela decided to become deeply & personally involved with politics & the Socialist Party USA, their platform (in regards to education, health care, the legal system & more), how change needs to happen from local levels on up (in the ballot box and on the streets), the politics of division & the urgent need to change that ASAP, naturally being “intersectional as f**k”, how folks have been responding to their campaign (especially since socialism has been slandered with misinformation via various places) and lots more!

** NOTE: This week is an explicit/not radio friendly episode on the music and commentary ends... ** This is the latest, BRAND NEW episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Ausar Ra Black Hawk for the week of July 28, 2016 with some new and classic music from the international Black Diaspora, news and commentary on everything from politics to pop culture. This week's radio show breakdown (by minutes/hours): Introduction + Commentary: 0:00 - 1:19:18 DJ Fusion Mix (Extended): 1:19:18 - 3:23:40 Our commentary this week touched base on a bunch of random topics, including various reunions of the Hip-Hop and High School reunion ends, our complete disappointment with KRS-One's completely ridiculous defense of not questioning Hip-Hop's leaders in the midst of sexual abuse allegations against Afrika Bambaataa, exhaustion from the current U.S. Presidential Election cycle (on everything from the DNC Wikileaks e-mails, voters purely driven by fear yet wanting constructive change at the same time, slander against 3rd parties, etc.), the ingrained ignorance of being "good" enough to not be killed by law enforcement if you're a Person of Color, mini-movie review talk (on "Ghostbusters", "Batman: The Killing Joke", etc.) and some other stuff here and there.
