    Changes at Flow 93.5

    Mastermind posted this message on both Twitter and Instagram on Tuesday:

    Now comes word that Peter Kash and Blake Carter are being moved from mornings to afternoons. I'm not a regular listener to the station, but being the only "hip hop" station in the market, this is a bit alarming.

    If you got it, a truck brought it.

    Just go to Flow's website and you'll get the answer


    This is about as big of an upgrade you can get in radio right now.

    So they're going to syndicate the Breakfast Club from New York. I guess CRTC loosened the Canadian content rules. I don't listen to Flow anyway Sirius XM for me.

    I shine and rise at the same time.

    I'm a western woman. Here is what i've learned, both in my own life and from what my girlfriends tell me.
    Women want a man that is worthy of their RESPECT. Period. It doesn't matter to most of us if you drive a fancy car, or if you're 6 feet tall or if you make a gazillion dollars. We want to respect you. As MEN.

    The Breakfast Club show is already played on Flow on Saturday mornings for a long time now. A lot of changes to the station over the years from old school to new school and back again. I think CTV owns it.
    Uh shorty, turn it around lemme see somethin

    Yea, I'm talkin lights, camera, action

    I don’t listen to radio anymore. Now, I just Bluetooth music playlists from my phone when I’m driving.

    However, I do feel sad that Flow 93.5 is headed in this direction. I know it’s a costs savings measure to replace live talent with a syndicated program, but Toronto’s hip hop scene is so robust and vibrant. We need Toronto-based on air talent to nurture, support, and promote our local artists. Charlamagne Tha God is too far removed. He probably only knows Drake, The Weeknd, and Daniel Caesar.

    Charlemagne Tha God may leave The Breakfast Club soon, those rumors have been gaining steam as of late.

    Most Americans and Canadians outside the city don't know the cultural differences of the urban scene in Toronto, as opposed to that south of the border.

    This station hasn't been a real hip hop station for around 15 years.

    It's better than the Pop/Rock music stations, lol.

    Tell them to stop playing so much Sean Paul. He's perhaps the least talented artist the world has ever heard.


    "...for the first time, in that night alive with signs and stars, I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world. Finding it so much like myself—so like a brother, really—I felt that I had been happy and that I was happy again. For everything to be consummated, for me to feel less alone, I had only to wish that there be a large crowd of spectators the day of my execution and that they greet me with cries of hate."

    Flow was the first Canadian Urban Station. Now that the market has opened up to the Genre, they kind of lost their identity. They're not really cultural based, not hardcore hiphop/RnB, not fully throwback, not fully Pop.

    It's a big upgrade in terms of Brand, but it's not homegrown. I just hope they don't force this down our throats like Steve Harvey on 93.7

    This sucks .

    Mastermind is a legend & I know for sure ill miss "daddy-o-kee" and the many interesting topics he discussed.

    I do love the breakfast club but this is the only Canadian station dedicated to hip hop.. I don't want them to ruin it .

    I guess we will just have to see what happens.

    From listening in on mornings since Monday, it seems that Blake and Peter are still doing mornings (for now). I didn't get an official reason/story. Although COVID-19 is a unique situation that can affect everything.

    He's one of the few dancehall artists that those from the Non-Urban crowd know about, and can even understand. His music isn't played on G 98.7 as he doesn't resonate with the Caribbean community very much. Some of his earlier music was not bad, before he was famous.

    No he isn't! As if you haven't heard of Vanilla Ice or Snow. But he is a rip off of Super Cat, and since his good early years he now comes off as Jamaican as Snow is.
