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.
It's fall here in the Hudson Valley, my favorite time of year. The
leaves are changing color, and it's beautiful here. Try to visit if you can. It's worth the trip.
Thanks to everyone who helped out with our annual pledge drive, and
special thanks to everyone who called in with their donations. I raised
$800 in 3 hours.
Also in September, guitarist Tim Farrell stopped by to play guitar and
talk. He's a funny guy and great guitar player and I'm grateful for his visit. Later this month I
will have ambient musician Dave Luxton and guitarist Peter Janson in the
studio for live interviews. Stay tuned. If you're in the area and you want
to come in for an interview or play live, let me know. And if you're
playing live in the area, let me know so I can promote it.
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 September, 2013.
