Mark Hardt has been in and out of Public Radio since he was a Sophomore in college at Xavier-WVXU in Cincinnati. Most recently he had a show in the summer of 2011 at WMNF and before that was on the air most of the 2000's at KUCI 88.9 on the campus of UC Irvine in Orange County, CA. Mark goes to as many music shows as possible and this will probably increase as his 11 and 14 year old boys go to more concerts. Mark truly likes everything and even enjoys the Florida Orchestra performances.
