My Exit: Andrew Hotaling


Tonight's my Exit D.J., Drew Hotaling.

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:

My name is Andrew Hotaling and I'm from East Greenbush.

How would you describe your taste in music?
I listen to all types of music but I would say that my favorite types would be 80s pop and early 90s grunge.

Three songs from Andrew's show:
Don't Follow - Alice in Chains. Alice in Chains were one of the big four labeled grunge (Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden) in the early 90s and this song has great harmonizing and acoustic guitar work. These guys are probably my favorite group right now

Say Hello to Heaven - Temple of the Dog. This album was a collaboration between members of Pearl Jam and Chris Cornell of Soundgarden and was mainly a tribute to a friend that overdosed on drugs. At first it didn't have a large amount of success but once Pearl Jam and Soundgarden were on the map it was re-released and was much more successful.

Easy Lover - Phil Collins and Philip Bailey. I love Phil Collins and this is one of many hits he had as a solo artist. The music is really upbeat and his voice is soooo smooth.

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

Here's how to schedule your own My Exit show on WEXT.
