Mark Richards

I'm a Buffalo native and a Buffalo Bills / Buffalo Sabres fan. When I'm not watching the Bills or Sabres on TV with a plate of homemade Buffalo wings, I'll be watching "Judge Judy" or working on my latest do-it-yourself project at my home in North Utica. There are many reasons why you should start your day the Lite way with me Mark Richards. You'll hear the best variety of lite favorites and you'll get the most music in the morning. You never have to wait very long for the day's weather forecast. We provide information updates every half-hour. You can win great prizes with Mindbender Trivia, at approximately 6:50 AM. I'll run down the birthday list every morning at 7:40 AM. We'll kick off the No Repeat Workday every morning at 8 AM with the 80s at 8 and the commercial-free music hour will start about 8:50 AM. During the winter, we'll have school delays and closings on-air and online. I promise, no "blue humor" you'd be embarrassed to explain to your kids! And now, my most recent blogs for you to enjoy.

Watch The Latest Incredible Bigfoot Footage and Actually Hear It Growl [VIDEO]

If you are a believer of the existence of Bigfoot, here's  brand new footage titled, "Incredible Bigfoot Footage (2013)". Though we don't necessarily think this is really that "incredible" we do find it to be kind of scary. This is probably one of the most terrifying encounters with Bigfoot yet, that is, if you believe. In the footage you can actually hear Bigfoot growl at the camera man, perhaps letting him know to stay away -- or else.

Top 5 Cultural Wedding Songs [VIDEOS]

I've been to dozens of weddings in my day as both a guest and as a host. One thing that stands out is that, if you have plenty of Irish guests, the DJ had better play some Bing Crosby and The Chiffons. If there is a significant Polish crowd, polkas are in order and for Italian weddings, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin sound great during dinner. With Culture Fest coming to the Stanley on April 13th, we thought we'd share some all time wedding favorites with you.

And now the Bills must take on another tough opponent Sunday, The San Francisco 49ers.

Buffalo Bills Week 4 Preview – Will The Loss Of Morman Matter?

Earlier this week the Bills released Brian Moorman, arguably the best punter in the NFL.

Moorman is averaging 45.2 yards per punt this season, but his 32.7 net average ranks 30th in the league. Will it hurt against The Patriots?
