Mark Richards

I’m Mark Richards, mid-days and weekends on Mix96. I was born in Buffalo and I grew up in the Cheektowaga/West Seneca area. I was that nerd who read the Pledge to the Flag in high school. We had a radio station, so I’ve been hooked since the age of 14. I’ve been in radio since the 80s and I was on staff in Utica NY when Townsquare took over some years ago. The #1 most played song on my iPod? It’s most likely a mix of music you don’t hear on any radio station. Favorite movie, favorite quote from that movie? The Notebook, “It was NEVER over.”

If there is a significant Polish crowd, polkas are in order and for Italian weddings, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin sound great during dinner. With Culture Fest coming to the Stanley on April 13th, we thought we'd share some all time wedding favorites with you.
