Sid Mark

November 21, 2020

Sid Mark (born Sidney Mark Fliegelman in 1933/1934)) is an American radio disc jockey based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who hosts weekly syndicated radio programs featuring the music of singer Frank Sinatra (1915-1998), interspaced with commentary, interviews, trivia facts etc. to add color and context.

His Philadelphia-area shows include Sunday with Sinatra, airing Sunday mornings on 1210 WPHT, and The Sounds of Sinatra, which is syndicated nationally through the Westwood One radio network. The first version/iteration, Friday with Frank, began airing in 1957 over WHAT-FM, where Mark was a disc jockey, and has been running continuously ever since. The Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia inducted Mark into their Hall of Fame in 2001. Mark has only missed one show, in 1999 for open heart surgery.
