My Exit: Robert DuPont

big_bill_broonzy sm.jpgWEXT starts a new season of My Exit tonight at 8. 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:

Robert DuPont from East Greenbush.

How would you describe your taste in music?
My tastes are quite eclectic. I like anything that is intelligent and soulful. I tend to favor melodic, hooky pop songs.

A few songs from Robert's My Exit show:

The Beatles - Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds - Sgt Pepper
It all kinda begins and ends with them doesn't it? I chose the mono version because it's the way I heard it when I was a kid.

Sam Phillips - Magic for Everybody - The Long Play
My favorite singer/songwriter. She writes amazing songs. This was taken from her Web project the Long Play.

Queen - Tenement Funster/Flick of the Wrist/Lily of the Valley - Sheer Heart Attack
a medley which shows their strengths as a band and their irreverence, which is  an important quality to have
Three Dog Night - Family of Man - Greatest Hits
These guys were huge; A lot of big hit singles when that actually meant something; they introduced a whole lot of great songwriters to music fans (  Harry Nillson, Randy Newman, Laura Nyro, Hoyt Axton !!) They deserve to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

John Brodeur - Masterpiece - Tiger Pop Ten
In keeping with the local 518 angle, I included John, who I think is a terrific songwriter and musician. He has re-issued his first record 'Tiger Pop', packaging the original CD with re-recordings.

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

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