Secret Music News, March 2015

Hi -

  Winter's still here, unfortunately. Supposedly the coldest February on
record around here. I believe it. Hope all of you are keeping warm. Hopefully spring will be
here soon. Plenty of good music, which is always welcome.

  Most of you know me at this point. but there's a few that might not. 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 27
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.
Don't get me wrong. I love CD's and love to see nice packaging. But I know
what it costs to mail such things, too. It's up to you. 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.  

  Many of you have noted that my mailing address has changed, though some
of you may want to double check. I wouldn't want something to get lost or returned
when mail forwarding runs out. For various reasons, I've decided to go
with a PO Box for the foreseeable future. Please use the following address
for all mailings through traditional post. For UPS/package mailings,
please contact me for a suitable shipping address. Thanks for your
understanding.

Secret Music Playlist, February 8, 2015

Hi -

  Here's my playlist for Sunday, February 8, 2015. Was out the past two
weeks, and this time I played the music of Tangerine Dream and Edgar Froese to pay tribute to
Edgar, who passed away recently. He produced a great body of music and
pioneered what we know today as the Berlin School sound. He influenced so
many musicians in his time. I only had time to play a small part of his
music. There's so much more out there to discover.

Secret Music News, February, 2015

Hi -

  I'm not a fan of winter. I managed to avoid one storm, but another seems
imminent. Can't wait for it to be warm again so I can be outside. Hope all of you are
staying warm. There is a lot of great music out there. I'm glad for those
of you who make it and send it to me so I can play it. There's always
something new out there, and that keeps things interesting.

  I'd like to take a moment to reflect on the passing of Edgar Froese,
founder of Tangerine Dream. Next week I'll play a show of TD and Froese solo music in his
honor. He influenced the work of so many people, myself included. I heard
the music of Tangerine Dream growing up and loved it. It was one of the
guiding forces that lef me to do this show. I saw TD in concert long ago,
for the Optical Race tour. Met him all too briefly afterward. Even though
he's gone, his legacy remains. Thanks, Edgar.
