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.

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.
