My Exit: Cooper Nelson

My Exit Cooper Nelson.jpgEach week with My Exit our friends at WEXT give us a chance to check out what's on the playlists of people in the Capital Region.

This week: From Ireland to England to Patsy Cline and TMBG

My name is Cooper, first time My Exit DJ, but a long time lover of radio. I'm a videographer/photographer and I have a 12 year old's mind trapped inside my 23-year-old body.

Taste in Music

Isn't it annoying when you ask someone what music they like and they reply with "I like to listen to everything!" Well... I'm one of them. Rock, jazz, metal, and funk are some of my favorites, though. Oh, and Queen is the greatest band ever.

A few songs from Cooper's My Exit:

"Derag Doom" - by Horselips
I had a folk rock faze a little while back and I stumbled upon this neat band from Ireland.

"Keep on Knocking" - by DEATH
These guys claimed to be one of the first all African-American punk bands ever. They made one album, and then disappeared. They came back and played a show in NYC last year. I went not knowing who they where, thought they rocked, and became an instant fan.

"Razor Face" - Elton John
Has anybody here seen Razor Face?

"Crazy" - Patsy Cline
We all have songs that can bring us back to childhood. This one brings me back to my diaper days.

"Everything Right is Wrong Again" - They Might Be Giants
I only started listening to TMBG about 2 years ago. Oh how I've missed out!

You can hear Cooper's My Exit show Monday night at 11 pm on 97.7, Saturday at 8 am, or at

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