Paul Nair is a native of Durham, North Carolina, where at the age of 15 he
joined college radio station WXDU as a Saturday morning music DJ. Through
the years he has worn many hats: hip-hop mix show host, breakbeat
evangelist, talk show moderator and even a (very) brief spell fronting a
spoken-word hard rock quartet. That didn't go over very well. His life has
changed repeatedly upon hearing Jawbox, The Dismemberment Plan and Pharoahe Monch for the first time, to name a few. He lives in New York City. You can read his non-musical thoughts at thisisdepression.com.
