My Exit: Bobby Z.

Bobby Z. My Exit.jpgMonday is my Exit Day in the Capital Region -- the day when listeners pick an hour of music on WEXT. It's a great way to get a listen to what's on someone else's iPod, hear old favorites or discover something you've never heard before.

Tonight -- the return of Bobby Z.

Who?
Bobby Z. I am from NYC, but now I live in quiet solitude on a mountain.

Bobby's taste in music:
I have an eclectic taste in music that ranges from folk to blues to rock and everything in between. That is why I like WEXT.

A few songs from Bobby's My Exit:

Flo and Eddie (aka Phlourescent Leech and Eddie, aka The Turtles) - "Keep it Warm"
An underrated song about world events and how the world changes but never for the better. Could have been written yesterday.

Hot Tuna - "Keep on Truckin'"
Jefferson Airplane - "Pretty as you Feel"
Both songs shared the work of Papa John Creech. He led the way for violin infused rock and roll.

Eugene McDaniels - "Welfare City"
He -- along with other civil rights activists -- echoed opinions through song, doing his part to change a racially divided space in time.

Fleetwood Mac - "The City"
Pre Stevie Nix vintage Mac. Before commercialism and money destroyed a perfectly great blues / rock band.

You can hear Bobby'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.
