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.”
