Secret Music News, June 2015

Hi -

  Somehow it went from being winter to summer without much spring in
between. A shame, because I like spring a lot. I've gotten to see a few good shows, though.
Saw David Torn play locally. Challenging, but wonderful. Got to see local
ambient guitarist Craig Chin play as Errant Space. Nice show and great
guy. And got to see two great guitarists, Helen Avakian and Muriel
Anderson play as well. That was a great show. More great stuff coming up,
too. Looking forward to seeing Rachel Grimes play, and Robin Spielberg
will be in the area, too.  If any of you are performing in the area,
please let me know so I can help promote it. I haven't had any live
interviews or performances in a while. I'd like to change that. If any of
you are in the area on a Sunday morning and want to drop by, let me know
and we'll set something up. The big news this month is that I'm
celebrating 28 years of Secret Music. Been a long time, and a lot of great
stories to tell. If you're around and you'd like to take part, let me

  Most of you know me at this point. but there's a few that might not. 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.
Don't get me wrong. I love CD's and love to see nice packaging. But I know
what it costs to mail such things, too. It's up to you. 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.
