Secret Music News, July 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 25
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 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.            

  A couple of things worth mentioning this time around. First, one of the
aftereffects of celebrating 25 years of Secret Music was that I rediscovered a lot of
great music that I've accumulated over the years. Do this long enough, and
eventually you have more CD"s than you know what to do with. I've
forgotten a lot of wonderful music and I'm having a lot of fun remembering
and playing it. I've been doing a massive reorganization of my music both
digital and physical and it's leading to a fundamental shift to playing
more of a balance between old and new music.

  Second, WVKR's annual fundraiser will be taking place right after Labor
Day (for those of you not in the States, that's early September). We rely on listener
contributions to pay the bills and stay on the air. If you'd like to help,
send me something I can use as a premium for listener donations. CD's,
T-shirts, download vouchers, etc. I'm certainly open to suggestions. I'd
be very grateful for anything you can spare. Email me if you have any

  There's a new service out called 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 July 2012. Enjoy!
