Secret Music News, October 2016

Hi -

  Sorry for taking so long to write. Things have been busy on this end.Too
much to do and not enough time, it seems. I'd like to thank everyone who made the annual WVKR
pledge drive a success. Thanks to the musicians who sent me stuff to give
away, thanks to the people who answered the phones, and especial thanks to
the people who called in to donate. I raised over $800 this year, and I'm
very grateful. It's the people who keep me going after all these years.
Thanks to everyone.

  Fall is here, and there are several live concerts coming to the area
that you may see me at. In this day and age of downloading and streaming music, the live concert
experience is something that has to be seen to be fully understood. I hope
that musicians will continue to tour and that people will continue to
support them.

  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.
