Things have been busy this past month, but in a good way. Started a new
job, got some time off and went to Philadelphia to meet people and take pictures. Got to
see Harrison McKay of the Tangent Project and Hotel Neon in concert, which
was a lot of fun. Also got to talk to Chuck Van Zyl of Star's End fame.
He's a great guy and incredibly gracious person.
Fall is here, and there are several live concerts and events of interest
to people in the Hudson Valley area. Centrozoon will be playing at Quinn's in Beacon on
11/13, and Ben Neill and Mimi Goese will be playing at the Towne Crier in
Beacon on 11/17. Centrozoon will also be performing live on my show on
11/20. And I'm very excited about an upcoming live interview with Paul
Winter on my show on 11/27.
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 29
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.
