My Exit: Cooper Nelson

My Exit --Cooper Nelso.jpgMy Exit -- in which a listener picks an hour of tunes on 97.7 -- is back.

Today's My Exit is an eclectic mix from Cooper Nelson, runs the gamut from Tom Waits to Devo.


Who?
I'm Cooper Nelson, but you can call me Coop.

I'm a photographer in Clifton Park. When I'm not working I like producing my own cooking videos .

Describe your taste in music:
I try to listen to as many different styles of music that I can. There's just so much out there, you may as well explore it. On any ordinary day though, I could listen to any Queen album presented to me.

A few songs from Cooper's show:

"I Wish" - Stevie Wonder
Stevie Wonder just seems awesome. Who wouldn't want to hang out with him? Well until that day, you can always listen to Songs In The Key of Life a whole bunch.

"Mongoloid" - Devo
I grew up with this preconceived notion that was imprinted upon me at a young age that Devo was a bad band, only known for one song. I have my college friends to thank for correcting that false information. Devo rocks.

"Wake Her Up" - Brittany Shoup
Brittany Shoup is a great songwriter and a great soul. Also a level 3 wizard in my D&D party. A local artist in the Capital Region, I highly recommend her music!

"Walking out the Door" - Tim Kurtzberg
Another good friend of mine, and another great musician. Here's a guy who really loves music, which is the most important quality of any musician. Definitely check him out.

"Emotional Weather Report" - Tom Waits
I love this song. I don't know if it's because I just think it's funny, or because I think we can all relate to it. Probably a little bit of both.

You can hear Cooper's My Exit show Monday night at 11 pm on 97.7, Saturday at 8 am, or at exit977.org.

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

That looks a whole lot like Oneonta's Autumn Cafe in the picture background.
Also, good tunes.

[A]nother factor that allows some politicians to slide into corrupt practices is the overriding notion that if they hadn't chosen to become "public servants" that they'd be making mega bucks on the corporate world. Which maybe they would. But it seems to give them license (in their own minds) to exploit any ethical grey area to make up for that loss of income.
