My Exit: Tim Byrne

Tonight's MyExit DJ, Tim Byrne.

Every Monday night our friends at WEXT do this thing called My Exit -- local listeners get to come into the station and program an hour of music. So we thought it'd be fun to find out a little bit about these people and why they picked the songs on their play list.

Here's tonight's person:


Timothy Byrne from Gloversville-- Quality Control Tech by day, Retired DJ.

Musical Taste:

I worked at various radio stations over the years, so my musical taste varies. Big Band, Jazz, Jug Band, Funk, Disco, Pop, Rock, and Country.

Five Songs from Tim's Show:

Blotto --Sharp Car - This song has HIT written all over it, okay Classic Hit! Who doesn't like BLOTTO? You can't go wrong with BLOTTO!

The Mike Curb Congregation --Burning Bridges. I have loved this song since first hearing it in the Clint Eastwood movie "Kelly's Heroes".

Dickie Goodman -- Mr. Jaws : This classic song got me hooked on "Cut in" songs. I have always wanted to do one myself.

SSgt Barry Sadler The Ballad of the Green Berets - I feel this is a great song to salute our men and women in the armed services.

Jim Gaudet --Little Maggie - I first heard Jim with the Ramblin' Jug Stompers at Tess' Lark Tavern. Jim has that great story telling singing talent. Bit country, a little bit humor, and an all around great time.

You can hear Tim's My Exit show tonight at 8 at 97.7 or at Here's how to schedule your own My Exit show on WEXT.


Tim - Nice job. During the Popcorn song I laughed -:). During the Teddy Bear song I cried. I laughed, I cried - but I did not change the channel -:) DJ Tim you were great !!! See you soon.
