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.”

Buffalo Bills Week 3 Preview – Will The Momentum Continue?

Buffalo, New York was clearly pumped up last Sunday, and so were The Buffalo Bills as they squished the fish 29-10 at the new and improved Ralph Wilson Stadium. C.J. Spiller exploded for a 102-yard kickoff return which got the crowd roaring while rookie receiver Sammy Watkins had a 12-yard touchdown catch as well in this unpredictable lop-sided victory for The Bills.
