My Exit: The Music Group

My Exit Man Overboard art.jpgIt's Monday -- time to preview tonight's WEXT My Exit show -- where the listeners get to pick their own playlists.

This week, it's not one DJ, it's four. The Music Group shares its collective taste in music, from punk to Polish.

Who:
This week's My Exit DJs are four students involved in an after school music group. Basia, Arielle, Chiara, and Maria all have a deep appreciation for music and acknowledge that the purposes of music can range from fun background noise while working on chores, to providing support when going through tough times. Their music selections portray that range of music in style, mood, and genres. The group meets weekly to share music with each other, and discuss themes in the music, ways to use music, and sometimes debate about why their selection is the "coolest song ever."

How would you describe your taste in music?
Basia has an eclectic taste in music, everything from R&B to hardcore, and her Polish roots further broaden her musical tastes and knowledge. Arielle is a fan of metal and rock, and as her Aerosmith selection displays, she has a softer side as well. Chiara is into punk and various other rock genres, and as a poet herself, listens to a lot of music with lyrics that have meaning to her. Maria prefers hip hop and R&B, and digs up some old school songs from time to time to share with the group.

A few songs from The Music Group's playlist:

Aerosmith - "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing"
From Arielle: This is a song that reminds me of past relationships and hopes for the future.

Man Overboard - "Love Your Friends, Die Laughing"
From Chiara: The best song ever, and one that I listen to and sing along with when I am happy.

Piotr Rubik - "Niech Mowia Ze To Nie Jest Milosc"
From Basia: A song I remember my father playing for me, and even when I listen to it now, it brings me back to those times.

Fantasia - "Truth Is"
From Maria: This is an honest song makes me think of my own feelings from the past.

You can hear The Music Group's My Exit show Monday night at 8 pm on 97.7 or at exit977.org. It also repeats at 10 am Sunday morning.

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

I know why I take the bus more - because it's easier to take now! Busplus from Schenec to Albany gives me a nice relaxing ride and I can do work or read my book, I basically gain an extra hour of my life. Can't wait for the navigator cards to ramp up. Much better than those ten trips.
