Mark debuted Sonic Sunrise WMNF in May 2011 but had to give up the show in September 2011 to take a job in Fort Myers, FL. The show was revived in July 2019 and was briefly off the air in June 2020 for Pandemic reasons.
My Son Colin who turns 14 soon has helped out once before the Pandemic. I hope to have both of my Sons in the studio on a regular basis. A friend of mine with a 22 year old mentioned he turned his daughter on to radio and she loved it because of the “surprise effect”. Radio is like a box of chocolates you never know what you will get. Beat that digital song streaming services.
Here is a short 30 Second audio promo of my show Sonic Sunrise WMNF.
