WVKR Annual Pledge Drive

Hi -

  WVKR will hold its annual Pledge Drive for 2013 starting on Tuesday, September 10, and going until Monday, September 16. Although WVKR is a college radio station (Vassar College) and derives some funding from the college, it's not nearly enough to meet all their needs. So once a year we DJ's ask our listeners to help support independent radio in the Hudson Valley by calling in donations or emailing them to us. Every little bit helps, and we greatly appreciate our listeners for helping us out. We have some nifty premiums for people too, including tshirts, CD's and such. My portion of the Pledge Drive will be on Sunday, September 15, from 9AM to 12 noon. I urge you all to call in and show your support. Let me know if you have any questions. Here's the station phone number to call in on the 14th. Operators will be standing by.


  And here's the WVKR website for those of you who wish to donate online and/or listen in online, too.

  Thanks muchly!

Scott Raymond

Secret Music News, September 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 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     

  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.                

  Coming up this month is the annual WVKR Pledge Drive. WVKR is a
non-commercial station, supported to a large degree by listener donations. The pledge
drive will start on September 10 and run until September 16, with my
portion on Sunday, September 14. If any of you can help out with
interesting goodies to use as premiums for people's donations, please let
me know. It can be CD's, downloads, or most anything else. I'm open to

 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 August, 2013. Enjoy!
