Paul “Mastermind” Parhar

DJ/Ass’t Program Director/Afternoons 3p-7p 93-5 The Move,
CFXJ-FM 93.5 (The Move)
Toronto, ON, Canada
The resume starts at the early age 15, when Mastermind was awarded his own radio show on York University’s CHRY 105.5 FM. All signs indicated that he would be an influential force in the advancement of hip-hop in Canada. He leapt to the country’s premier campus and longest-running hip-hop radio show, “The Power Move,” in ’91 and simultaneously experienced his first taste of the commercial airwaves on Buffalo’s WBLK 93.7 FM. Only three years later, his high-energy antics and ability to entertain caught the attention of Energy 108, who hand-picked him to produce, DJ and host his own hip-hop radio show, “The Mastermind Street Jam.” Mastermind accomplished what no one before him could: his show became the very first urban mix-show on commercial radio in this country….In between then and now you can add Canadian mixtape pioneer, Major label recording artist as well as the current Assistant Program Director and Afternoon Drive host at Toronto’s 93-5 The Move where he’s been since 2011”
