Mark is noted for hosting a weekly syndicated radio program featuring the music of singer Frank Sinatra (1915-1998), including commentary, interviews, trivia facts etc. to add color and context.

Career[edit]

Mark's shows include Sunday with Sinatra, airing 9 am to 1 pm each Sunday on 1210 WPHT in Philadelphia,[2] and The Sounds of Sinatra, which is syndicated nationally through the Westwood One radio network.[3] The first version of Mark's Sinatra shows was Friday with Frank, which began airing in 1957 over WHAT and WHAT-FM, where Mark was a disc jockey, and has run nearly continuously in Philadelphia ever since. The Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia inducted Mark into their Hall of Fame in 2001.[4] Mark has only missed one show, in 1999 for open heart surgery.[5]
