About Mark Laurence

• When did you start at MAGIC? I started in January 1991 as a part-timer and went full time as music director and on-air personality that July, so it will be 25 years in January!
• Favorite type of food? I’m not a picky eater and I like all kinds of food. Sushi is one of the best!
• Favorite MAGIC artist? I figure I’ve programmed between two and three million songs as music director at MAGIC so it’s really difficult to say somebody is my favorite, but I always turn up the radio with Pink or Bryan Adams comes on.
• Favorite new TV show? Walking Dead. I was a late-comer to this but now I’m completely hooked. House of Cards too, but I can’t binge-watch it all in a weekend.
• Favorite drink? Dr. Pepper, Labatt’s Blue.
• Favorite thing to cook? One of my favorite meals to cook is a big roast in the slow cooker and serve it on rice.
• Favorite place to vacation? Far away is Tokyo. Close to home, our family’s little summer place in Central Mass where I’ve been going since I was 9 years old.
• What would your alternate career be if you didn’t work at MAGIC? I’d like to be on the move, a railroad engineer maybe.
• What’s the worst job you ever had? In college I worked the overnight shift in a plastic factory. How to take the fun out of a summer vacation!
• Who is your celebrity crush? LOL, I can’t even make up a good answer to this one.
• Dogs or Cats, or Neither? My two cats would kill me if I didn’t say they are the best.
• Favorite place to take your tourist friends when they visit Boston? The top of the Pru, to see the whole city spread out before us.
