My Exit: Ben Bober

Tonight's "My Exit" d.j., Ben Bober

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:

Benjamin Bober, Albany, NY.

Musical Taste:

I listen to pretty much anything and everything. There's nothing better than discovering new music that you like. Whether it's a song you hear on the radio, or music from a tv show or movie that stays stuck in your head.

Three songs from Ben's show:

The Beatles
- I Should Have Known Better - I'm a huge Beatles fan. I remember as a kid watching the movie "A Hard Day's Night." That's when I really got into their music. This was one of those songs that was stuck in my head for a while after watching it.

Fountains of Wayne - The Girl I Can't Forget - A great song from a great band. I've been listening to Fountains of Wayne since I was in high school. This is a great pop song that tells a funny little story.
Missy Higgins - Sugarcane - I saw her in concert last March at Revolution Hall. I wasn't very familiar with her music, but she put on a great show, and has a great voice.

Ray LaMontagne - You Are the Best Thing - Saw him in concert at the Egg last April. He opened his last album, and the show with this song, so I thought I'd open my playlist with it.

Josh Rouse - It's the Night Time - I read about him in an article Cameron Crowe wrote about some of his favorite artists. I decided to download his album Nashville, which is an amazing album. I could have picked any song off that album, but this was one of my favorites.

You can hear Ben's My Exit show tonight at 8 at 97.7 or at
