Hello Pretty City

Sundays 8-10pm

Hello Pretty City is a radio show on Sundays, at 8-10pm, on EXIT 97.7, WEXT, in the Capital District and streaming live online at www.exit977.org. Oh…and Metroland named it the “Best Indie Rock Radio Show” in 2012, 2011, and 2010. Sweet!

You'll hear a mix of classic and emerging indie music with healthy doses of classic country croons, banjo-driven toe-tappers, and catchy electro-dance tunes. You may not know all the songs but you'll most likely fall in love with them!

On this site you can check out playlists from previous Hello Pretty City shows with a few announcements and photos thrown in the mix, too!

Sign up here to get the weekly Hello Pretty City newsletter. It includes the week's playlist and other kinda relevant odds and ends.

Hello Pretty City started in 2003 on Tuesday mornings on WRPI and moved a little further up the dial to WEXT in the spring of 2010. 

Find out more about our gracious host, Laura, at her page and see playlists going all the way back to 2005 on her website.

Hello Dear Friend,



It's not easy to tell you this, but after 16 years of being on the radio every week, the final Hello Pretty City radio show will be in early November.


It's not WEXT...they are deeply kind and would gladly keep Hello Pretty City on the air. 


Rather, it's me.
