My Exit: Bobby Z. and Nick

Bobby Z.jpgWEXT's My Exit is back. Every Monday night local listeners get to come into the station and program an hour of music. 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 this week's person, who has an all-vinyl show lined up...

Bobby Z. and his son Nick. I grew up on Long Island and moved up this way after my son was born to give him a better life away from the crowded city. I built a house for me and my family. That was twenty years ago. My son in now getting ready for college and I live pretty much alone on top of a hill in the same house.

How would you describe your taste in music?
I like a wide range of music. Nick also has picked up on a wide variety of music. He can also play music, something I could never grasp, as much as I tried.

A few songs from their show:
My son Nick and I both did this show. What is special about this show is that everything is from vinyl records. A lot is out of print or very hard to find.

+ "Living In The City" -- Hookfoot
This song reflects my dreams of escaping the New York City scene. Eventually, I did.

+ "The Wave" -- Sinatra
Just a beautiful song.

+ "Harley Davidson Blues" -- Canned Heat
The beginnings of a lifestyle for me.

+ "Goody, Goody" and "The Music Goes Round" -- Enoch Light
A tribute to my fathers collection

+ "Shaving Cream", "Police Officer" and "Candy Rapper"
You gotta have a sense of humor.

You can hear Bobby and Nick's My Exit show tonight at 8 on 97.7 or at

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


Hey! I think there was a mixup. This show was on last Monday! I listened to it!

This has to be one of the greatest shows in broadcast history. These two guys are the Lewis and Clarke of radio, always finding new ways to go musically. I think I speak for all of radio land, I can't wait to hear where they take us next time.
