Clark Weber, who has always referred to himself as "Mother Weber's Oldest Son", began his start in radio as an amateur (ham) radio operator in 1950. After leaving the Navy in 1954, Weber's first radio job was at WAUX in Waukesha, Wisconsin. He also worked at WBKV in West Bend, Wisconsin and WRIT in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.[2]

He moved to Chicago in 1961 where he joined the staff of WLS, initially working as a graveyard shift DJ and climbing to program director. This is where Weber became well known spinning Top 40 records. Weber worked in Chicago for WCFL, WMAQ, WIND, WJJD, and recently WAIT, where he did a Friday morning show.[3]

Weber promoted A Senior Moment with Clark Weber, a pre-recorded program series for radio stations targeting senior health issues.[3] In 2015, Weber made the decision to retire from broadcasting; he was 84 at the time. Just prior to his retirement, Weber was named to the Illinois Broadcasters' Hall of Fame.[4]
