Secret Music News, August 2014

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 27
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.                   

  A couple of upcoming things which I want to tell you about. First, WVKR
is having its annual fundraiser in early September, right after Labor Day. WVKR is an
independent radio station which gets some funding from Vassar College, but
relies on listener donations to keep things running. It's an important
time of year for us, and I look forward to it. It's nice to know that
people support what you're doing. If you'd like to help out by sending
CD"s, etc. for use as premiums, it's always appreciated. Drop me a line
and let me know. Thanks.

  The other big news is that I'll be traveling to Ireland in early October
for a much needed vacation. My mom is turning 75 this year, so we're celebrating by seeing
Ireland. We'll be there for about a week and a half. If anyone in the area
would like to get together for dinner or such, let me know. And if you
have any suggestions or advice, let me know that as well.

  There are some great live concerts coming to the area in August.
Unfortunately, I missed seeing Ben Neill, but I got to see David Torn play. Great show. Some big
names, and some really interesting performances. I hope some of you in the
area can make it out to a show or two. Really looking forward to seeing
Markus Reuter play live. Check out this link for more information.

  If any of you out there happen to be in the area and want to stop by for
an interview or to perform live, I'd love to have you here. Summertime is beautiful here,
too. I'm always looking for interviews and/or performances from
interesting people. Send me an email and we'll work something out. 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,
2014. Enjoy!
