Canada Day

It is only fitting that since its Canada day we pay tribute to Canada's longest running hip hop radio show. Since 1989 the Masterplan show on CIUT 89.5fm has been banging out real hip hop long before dudes had to claim they were real. Nuff said.

Founded by DJ DTS (pictured left), Johnbronski, DJ Power,and Motion in '89 this show continues to air every saturday night from 8-10pm. Now 20 years deep, founding member DTS continues to keep the show live while mentoring several up and coming djs like L'Oquence, EV Star, Jazzy and others. This show is a Toronto hip hop staple, on a number of occasions as I passed through to hangout in studio over the last ten years I have 'bumped' into Doug E. Fresh, Crazy Legs, and OHNO. Callers from as far away as Pittsburgh regularly call up to bigup the show and make requests. It is great to see that 2 decades later people still devote their time (volunteer time!) for the love of hip hop

Catch history in the making...
