Secret Music News, December 2016

Hi -

  This has been a busy month for me. I had the pleasure of hosting a live
in studio concert with Centrozoon on November 20. Markus Reuter and Bernhard Wostheinrich
are great musicians and great people, too. And on November 27, I got the
chance to interview one of my idols and early influences, Paul Winter. He
was a very nice guy and it was a true privilege to get to meet him.

  One other important event is coming up on Sunday, December 11. 40 years
ago, WVKR started broadcasting as an FM station. So now I get to host a 40th
anniversary celebration for the radio station that has allowed me to do
all these crazy things over the years. I'm looking forward to talking to
some old friends again.

  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           

  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.
