Somehow summer seems to have slipped me by. Working too hard, obviously.
And with the end of summer comes our annual pledge drive. It starts right after Labor
Day, and my portion will be on Sunday, September 13. As a non-commercial
college station, we don't do advertising. We get some money from the
school, but not enough to pay all the bills. The pledge drive helps us do
that and gives us a chance to connect with our audience as well. If any of
you would like to help out with things we can use as premiums, such as
CD's, downloads, etc., it would be greatly appreciated. Drop me an email
and let me know. Thanks.
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 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.
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.
