A Philadelphia native, Mark grew up in Roxborough and has followed in the footsteps of his father who once hosted a music program on WRTI in the '50s.
As an undergraduate at La Salle University, Mark hosted their radio station's only classical music program. He went on to become the weekend overnight host at WFLN-FM during the last seven years of the station's existence.
In addition to a degree in communications from La Salle, Mark also holds a graduate degree in library science. He is currently the Adult Services Director at Phoenixville Public Library, where he has worked since 1997. Jill Pasternak, Rolf Charlston, and Jeff Duperon (so far) have made appearances at the library, lecturing to roomfuls of admiring and appreciative fans. Mark brings his cataloging skills to WRTI, where he assists Jack Moore with entering new classical CDs into the station’s database.
Mark is also active as a cantor at his church and sings (tenor) with the church choir and other choral groups around Montgomery and Chester counties. He’s also available for weddings, funerals, etc...
Mark can be heard on Saturdays from 12:30 to 1 pm and from 5 to 6 pm as host of WRTI's Classical New Releases program.
