Secret Music News, July 2015

Hi -

  It's a rainy 4th of July here in NY, and I'm hoping there are still
fireworks tonight. I love me some fireworks. June was my 28th anniversary here at WVKR, and what better way to spend it than with an old friend and great musician, Robin
Spielberg. We've known each other for most of those 28 years, but this was
the first time I'd had her in the studio for an interview. One of the
things I've learned over the years is that it's as much about the people
as it is about the music. And Robin is one of the nicest people I know. As
the Dead would say, it's been a long strange trip. I didn't know it would
last this long. I'm not sure if I've got another 28 years left, but it's
still fun. That's what matters.

  If any of you are performing in the area, please let me know so I can
help promote it. And 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. 

  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 28
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.
