Secret Music News, June 2013

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 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.                

  Spring is here, and the Hudson Valley is beautiful. I've got a new
camera arriving tomorrow (IR modified) and I'm looking forward to taking some pictures with it. I
got to see Ben Neill perform a blistering jazz set at a local club. And
I'll be seeing ambient pioneer Pauline Oliveros perform at another local
club later this month. I had local musician Brian Farmer come into the
studio last Sunday to talk about his music and play CD's. He's a great guy
and it was good to talk to him again. This month I celebrate the 26th
anniversary of Secret Music. It's amazing that it's been that long. And
I'll be celebrating in grand style with a live on-air performance from
local musician Symmetry on Sunday, June 16th. It's sure to be a great
show. And coming up on Sunday, July 14, is an interview with pianist Rick
Cutler. He's got a new album coming out and I'm looking forward to hearing it.

  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 May, 2013. Enjoy!
