Secret Music News, June 2016

Hi -

  This month I celebrated my 29th anniversary with WVKR. Hard to imagine
it's lasted that long. It started out as a summer replacement show, and somehow managed to
make it last this long. After all this time I find that what really
matters isn't so much the music, but the people. I've heard thousands of
albums. And that's good, but it's the people who make it memorable. The
people who make the music, the people at the record labels, and mostly the
people who listen to me play strange music week after week. I couldn't
have lasted this long without all of you. Now starts the countdown to my
30th anniversary, coming next June. I'd like to do something special for
the occasion. A live interview/performance or two, and I'm thinking of a
compilation album. I'm open to ideas, and welcome your input. Anyone who
wants to help is greatly appreciated.

  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.
