Mastermind Street Jam

Mastermind Street Jam was a radio show on Energy 108 (107.9fm) that served the Hamilton, Burlington, and Toronto areas in the mid to late 1990s.

I taped the shows on cassette religiously for years and wanted to share my collection with you. I have over 100 tapes from 1994 through 1997. I plan to release a new episode weekly here for as long as I can.
