Secret Music News, April 2016

Hi -

  Funny thing. It's been spring for about 2 weeks now, and it's snowing
today. Such is life here in the Hudson Valley. But it's been a good winter, and there are
plenty of signs of spring. No scheduled interviews/performances at the
moment, though I hope to have some announcements soon. I've been noticing
lately that I've been getting lots more acoustic music and less
ambient/electronic. I'm not complaining, but I'm wondering why. Is there
less ambient/electronic music out there, or am I just not seeing it? If
that's the case, then I'd like to catch up. Hopefully I'll hear from a
couple of you with new things to play that I don't know about yet.

  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.
