Secret Music News, April 2014

Hi -

  My name is Scott Raymond, and for those of you who don't know me, I'm a
New Age/Ambient/Electronic music DJ with WVKR-FM. WVKR is a 3700 watt
non-commercial station broadcasting from Vassar College to the greater
Hudson Valley region. My show, "Secret Music", has been on for over 26
years and has a large and devoted audience. The show airs every Sunday
from 9AM to 12 noon EST. For more information or to listen in online,
check out our website at www.wvkr.org.         

  I'm always looking for new and interesting music to play. If you have
something you think I'd be interested in, feel free to send it to the address below. I'm perfectly
fine with downloads instead of CD's, especially for all you overseas
people who pay large sums of money to mail things here to the states. I
usually prefer high quality MP3's, though I can accept other formats if
necessary. Just send me an email for more info. At least half of what I
play these days comes to me through downloads. Thanks.                   

  Sorry for this month's email being so late. Been very busy and then laid
up with a nasty cold for a bit. At least it's finally warming up here. If you're in the area or
passing through and you'd like to stop by on a Sunday morning for an
interview or to perform live, let me know. It's a lot of fun to get to
know the people behind the music. And the Hudson Valley looks really nice
in the spring when the flowers start to bloom. If you have any questions
for me, or need help with anything, just ask. My time and resources are
limited, but I'll do what I can. For more info or weekly playlists, check
out my website below. I'm also on Facebook, so look for me there too.
Here's my top 20 playlist for March, 2014. Enjoy!

Hi -

  Here's my playlist for Sunday, March 9, 2014. Lots of great new stuff.
Also played a Far East Family Band album I picked up recently (Kitaro's first band). And I
played music from Marissa Nadler, who I got to see perform locally last
week. It was a great show and she has an amazing voice. Enjoy!
