DIARY OF A MADman...
WHO IS MARK AFTER DARK?
"The Man That Hates Everything Except The Real Thing"!
Mark After Dark has been a Rock and Roll and Music Enthusiast since his earliest childhood. From sneaking into AC/DC and Charlie Daniels concerts when he was a pre-teen, to waking up with Ted Brown on WNEW AM, or walking to school with great DJ’s like Dave Herman on WPLJ FM, and Scott Muni on WNEW FM, Mark would be rocking his Walkman. Leaving home at an early age, to pursue life on the road with various bands, his time as a musician gave him the opportunity to tour all over the country, and meet and perform with many who have since gone on to rise through the ranks of the music industry. Mark After Dark made some of his finest discoveries in little-known clubs, discovering band's such as: Nashville Pussy, Queene V, The Donnas, and many more. Mark’s passion for music and his ability to forge alliances with the heroes of Rock and Roll have won him interviews and friendships around the music world. His controversial and brash style has earned him the honor of being compared to classic Creem Magazine’s Lester Bangs. In 1996, the first incarnation of the Mark After Dark Show was born on two of New Yorks’ better known cable channels. Running late-night on Fridays, it has become a part of the New York Rock scene, garnering many loyal fans. It was rated as one of the top cable shows in 1999, by Timeout magazine. Mark has been a devoted music fan for over 40 years, and continues on, until this very day.
