Secret Music News, June 2012

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 24 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 on the lookout for new and interesting
music to play on my show. If you have something you think I'd be
interested in, feel free to send it to the address below or email me for
more info. If you're a local musician or just passing through the
beautiful Hudson Valley region and you'd like to stop by for a live
interview and/or performace, drop me a line and we'll work something out.
Also, if you'd like to send me downloads of your releases in lieu of
actual CD's, that's fine with me, too. Just send me an email and let me
know. Thanks.           

  The big news this month is that on June 17th, I celebrated the 25th
anniversary of Secret Music. It started on June 17, 1987 on a different day (Wednesday) with a
different title (Theme Of Secrets). If you'd told me then that I'd still
be doing this 25 years later, I wouldn't have believed you. It was meant
to be a fill in show for the summer. I'm still filling in. It's been a
wild ride so far. I'm not sure how long it'll last, but I'll enjoy it
while I can. Things have changed so much, but there's still lots of great
music out there to discover. More than the music though, it's the people
that keep things interesting. The musicians, the label people, and most of
all the listeners. Thanks to everyone for putting up with me and the
strange music I play. 

  There's a new service out called DAR.fm. which allows you to record
radio shows (like mine). The website has more info. but it's basically a free service much
like a Tivo, which allows you to select and record radio shows for future
listening. Finally something for those of you who aren't around to listen
in on a Sunday morning.        

  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 April 2012. Enjoy!
