Music-lover Mark McFadden was born Cincinnati, but his Florida upbringing gave him a passion for surfing, water skiing and playing lots of golf. When he moved back to the area during his freshman year of high school, he filled his time during the cold winter months by mixing music. His professional career included time in California where he worked at The Hollywood Palace as one of their house dancers and as a DJ, and his dance career even featured a stint in Vegas at the Riviera Hotel in one of their longest running shows, Splash!
After settling down back in Cincinnati, Mark started DJing in clubs and came on with Q102 in 1991. He met his beautiful wife Jen in 1994 and has three children who are destined to carry on the McFadden music-loving tradition.
