My Exit: Brian Hughes

Brian Hughes.jpg

Brian. And his ride.

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:

Brian Hughes, Rotterdam NY

How would you describe your musical taste?
I Listen to almost anything,from Bluegrass, Boogie-Woogie, Rock, Progresive Rock. There's a lot of older stuff in my collection -- Windham Hill style Jazz, George Winston, Creedence, Neil Young, Cheap Trick and The Guess Who

Five songs from Brian's show:

Ramble Tamble
by CCR, this was my first album I ever purchased. I heard it up at my uncle's camp,my cousin was playing it. Played it a million times, still love the instrumental on it.

Like A Hurricane by Neil Young and Crazy Horse. I think this is one of his best works. Interesting lyrics, great guitar work.

Life To Go by Died Pretty, one of those songs you just need to turn up!
World Became The World by PFM (Premjata Fornerja Marconi) A rare song , it grows on you.

Let It Lie by Trickster. This is a really rare song and group. A song that I taped years ago. Know idea who it was,or what the name of the song was. Played it for everyone,several radio stations,even played for original DJ. No one could identify it.,nothing on lyric searches. Finally found a lead, tracked it down. Nice head phone music.

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