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:
I'm Paula Harrison. I grew up in Valley Stream, Long Island and currently live in East Schodack.
How would you describe your musical style?
It's always been hard for me to answer the question, "What kind of music do you listen to?" I love all kinds of music. Anything that can make me sing, dance, smile, cry or get that feeling in my body like, "Damn, it feels good to be alive!"
3 songs from Paula's "My Exit" show:
"Better Than" by The John Butler Trio. My brother introduced this song to me. It's a song which reminds me that sometimes we are stuck feeling like life can always be better. We are always thinking, "What can I buy, what can I do to make my life better?" When the reality is, all you really need, you already have.
"Virginia Wolf" by The Indigo Girls. This song has brought me through so many stages in my life. It is an ongoing reminder that change is the only constant.
"Strawberry Swing" by Coldplay. To me, Coldplay is a band that can make me feel sad and happy at exactly the same time. That feeling is rare, but it is a beautiful feeling.
You can hear Paula's My Exit show tonight at 8 at 97.7 or at exit977.org.
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.
