My Exit: Robin Roberts

Robin Roberts.jpg

Tonight's MyExit D.J. Robin Roberts schooling her opponents at darts.

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:

Robin D. Roberts (aka rdr2) from Delmar NY.

How would you describe your musical taste?
As most people who do this say, I love all sorts of music. What I probably listen to the most is 'americana'/'y'alternative'/'alt-country'/whatever you'd like to call it and indie stuff. I also listen to a lot of classic country (Hank Williams, Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, etc.), newer stuff that sounds like classic country, hellbilly and metal (I love Hank 3). Oh and I love '80's alternative' stuff and electronic music.

A few songs from Robin's My Exit show:

Ryan Adams - These Girls - I love him and have seen him live nine times. I love this one becuase it's such a straight forward, simple song.

The Smiths - There Is a Light That Never Goes Out : One of the best bands of all time in my opinion. I feel like this song typifies all that is The Smiths.

Radiohead - Black Star : Radiohead have gone on to make such different/amazing music and is practically a different band. I love all of their music but I feel like their older stuff gets ignored/overshadowed.

Ray Lamontagne - Hold You In My Arms : I love his voice. This is SUCH a romantic's just begging to be used in a love real life or the movies.

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