My Exit: Dianne Reagan

My Exit D reagan.jpgMonday is My Exit day on WEXT -- the day on which one listener gets to share their playlist.

Tonight, Dianne Reagan shares what she's found in a constant search for something new, even in something old.


Dianne Reagan, Slingerlands. I'm an elementary principal, a mom of two, and a wife.

What kind of music do you like?

I love all music from indie rock to folk to lots of favorites from the 80s. Particularly obsessed with finding new music from wherever and whenever I can, which includes my 16-year-old son, 97.7, and obsessive clicking around the internet.

Five songs from Dianne's My Exit:

"Spirit" -- Trip Shakespeare
Trip Shakespeare is one of my all time favorite bands, mostly because they have a unique sound.

"Something to Fall Back On" -- Todd Rungren
Todd's whole album, A Cappella, was just that -- a product solely of the artist's voice mimicking conventional rock; an amazing undertaking and an addicting song.

"Constant Conversations" -- Passion Pit
My new favorite band thanks to my 16-year-old son, Cole. When Passion Pit comes into town...or anywhere nearby, you can find me dancing in the back, the only mom who knows every song.

"Spirit" -- The Waterboys
Just listen to the lyrics -- to me they answer the questions that we all ask at one time or another. I think ALL playlists should end with this song.

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

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