Hi -

  Here's my playlist for Sunday, August 14, 2016. I played lots of new
music, and the music of Clannad as one of the founding members, Padraig Duggan, passed away
earlier this week. They were pioneers in many ways. RIP, Padraig.

Secret Music News, August 2016

Hi -

  Two things of note this month. First of all, I'm glad to welcome back
guitarist extraordinare Markus Reuter to my show on Sunday, August 7 for a live interview and
performance. Not only is he a talented musician, but he's a wonderful
person too. I've interviewed him before, but this will be his first time
playing live for my listeners. I hope everyone will get a chance to listen
in. Also, coming in September (right after Labor Day) is the annual WVKR
pledge drive. WVKR is a non-commercial radio station that survives because
of donations from our kind listeners. And it's always amazing to me to
know that not only do people enjoy the show, but they enjoy it enough to
give us money to keep it going. If any of you musician/label types would
like to help, consider sending something that can be used as a premium for
their donations. CD's, T-shirts, download codes, etc. Anything is helpful.
Just contact me for more information. Thanks very much.

  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.
