Listen Up: Lisa Byrne’s “My Exit” tonight

June 22nd, 2009, 9:05 am by Greg

WEXT-FM – the official radio station of Nippertown – has been the biggest promoter of local music since it hit the airwaves two years ago.

Music fan Lisa Byrne, meanwhile, has certainly been doing her share to support the scene, as well. You’ll see her and her husband Tim out at lots of shows, often videotaping them for posting on YouTube.

At 8 tonight (that would be Monday) and repeated at 10am Sunday, June 28, Byrne teams up with WEXT for an hour to present her “My Exit” show, which promises to be loaded with plenty of Local 518 sounds including:


The Star Spangled Washboard Band

Ramblin Jug Stompers

The Gospel Train

The Fighting 86’s

The McKrells

Michael Eck

Frank Jaklitsch
