Secret Music News, May 2016

Hi -

  It's a hot Memorial Day here. Looks like an early summer after not much
of a winter. Been seeing a lot more great albums come in the last couple of months. Good new
ambient/electronic, too. Got to see Stick Men play live, which is always
fun. And it's always good to see Markus Reuter. In a couple of weeks I'll
be celebrating 29 years of Secret Music on WVKR. Doesn't seem like that
long, except when I go through the shelves of CD's looking for something
to play. I don't have any definite plans as of yet, but I'm open to ideas.
A live interview and/or performance would be nice. Let me know if you're

  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.
