Marlin Raymond Taylor grew up in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He first left his mark on radio broadcasting in Philadelphia in 1963, becoming known as "the father of the beautiful music format." Other than a year spent 750 miles above the Arctic Circle, his family and working life have been spent along the Northeast Corridor in cities from Washington, D.C. to Boston. At the height of his career, his musical programming could be heard from stations in many of the largest metropolitan areas of the United States. Today, he and his wife Alicia live in Silver Spring, Maryland.
