Secret Music News, July 2017

Hi -

  Somehow I've made it through 30 years at WVKR-FM. Not sure how I managed
to pull the wool over their eyes for this long, but I'm not complaining. I don't know
if I've got another 30 years in me, but I'm not done yet. Seriously folks,
I'm humbled and flattered that I've made it this far, and the response to
my 30th anniversary show has been overwhelming. The premise was simple:
musicians were to send me unreleased music that I could use on the show.
And rather than target specific artists, I made an open call. I got
responses from all over the world, as well as from several here in the
Hudson Valley. I got responses from people I hadn't heard from in ages,
and even a couple I'd never heard of before (which isn't easy). I had way
more music than could possibly fit in one 3 hour show. And to top it off,
Pete Calandra came up and played some new pieces he'd been working on.
Funny how sometimes the simplest ideas turn out to be the best. I'm
eternally grateful to all the artists who provided me with music for the
show, and special thanks to Pete for coming up to be a part of the
festivities.

  I'm looking for artists who are interested in coming to the station some
Sunday morning for a live interview/performance. I've been a bit lax of late, but I'd like to
change that. If you're in the area or passing through, let me know and
we'll figure something out.

  Time hasn't especially been my friend for a while, but things seem to be
getting better on that front. And I realize that I've also been lax in asking people for new
music to play. Thanks very muchly to those of you that have been sending
me CD's or downloads. But there are others who have new music that I'm
interested in. I'll reach out to some of you individually soon, but if
you've got something new, please let me know. CD's and downloads are fine
with me, whichever is easier for you.

Secret Music Playlist, June 18, 2017

Hi -

  Today was my 30th anniversary show. I started at WVKR on June 17, 1987. 30 years later, I'm still here playing wonderful music. To celebrate, I asked musicians to send me unreleased music that I could use for the occasion. The response was overwhelming. Some were specifically composed for the situation, some were from people I hadn't heard from in years, and a couple were from people I'd never heard of before. And too much to fit into one show, even with extra time. And to top it off, Peter Calandra came up from NYC to play some new improvised pieces for us, and I got to play the world premiere of his new album too. Here's the playlist. If anyone recorded the show, please let me know. Thanks to everyone who listened, thanks to all the people who sent me music to play today, thanks to Peter Calandra for coming in to play live, and thanks most of all to WVKR for putting up with me all these years. Enjoy!

Secret Music News, June 2017

Hi -

  It's spring here in the Hudson Valley, and those of you who follow me on
Facebook know I've been out and about enjoying the weather. Haven't seen many shows
lately, but I'll be out to see two great Candyrat guitarists, Antoine
Dufour and Ian Ethan Case, this weekend. I'd like to thank everyone who
has contributed unreleased music for my upcoming 30th anniversary show,
coming up on Sunday, June 18. There's still time for those of you who have
promised me something. It's great hearing from people I haven't heard from
in ages who have sent me some really nice unreleased music. And I'm happy
to announce a live musical performance by Pete Calandra. There's another
person who may be attending, but I won't say until I've received
confirmation. If you're in the area and want to stop by, or want to call
and say hello, just let me know. The show will run from 9AM to 12 noon,
though I think I may try to extend that a little to fit in all the music.
Should be a fun time.

Sunday, June 18. My idea for the show is twofold: to get people to
contribute new or unreleased pieces that I can premiere on the show, and
to have someone come in for a live interview/performance. I'm still
looking for the live portion of the show. If you're in the area and want
to stop by, just let me know. The show will run from 9AM to 12 noon
(perhaps a little longer if I have enough material). If you can't make it,
I hope you'll listen in. Should be a great time.

Secret Music News, April 2017

Hi -

  I'd like to do something a little different this month. I've been around
a long time and most of you know who I am. I've hosted my radio show, "Secret Music" here at
WVKR-FM for almost 30 years now. It's been a wonderful time. I've listened
to some great music and made some good friends. I'm grateful to everyone
who's listened over the years, and to everyone who's made the music that I
play. In 2 months, on Sunday, June 18, I will celebrate my 30th
anniversary with WVKR. I'd certainly appreciate it if people want to
contribute in some way. I've asked for people to contribute new/unreleased
music for the event, and a couple of you have already done so. I'm very
grateful to those of you who have sent those to me. I'd love to hear more.
If you'd like to contribute a piece, please let me know. Also, I'd love to
have a live interview and/or performance during the show, which will be
from 9-12AM that Sunday. If you'd like to stop by, let me know and we'll
work things out. This has always been a labor of love for me, and I'd like
the anniversary show to be something fun. I hope some of you can either
participate or listen in. Thanks.

Secret Music News, March 2017

Hi -

  February was a good month for me at Secret Music. A cold knocked me out
for one week, but I got to talk to Rick Cutler again, which is always fun. And he
brought his daughter who also performed on his new record. And I also got
to host a performance by the Sonic Skypilots, who played some amazing
improvised music and were great fun to talk to. I love moments like that.

  I don't have any other scheduled interviews or performances yet, but I'm
gearing up for my 30th anniversary show on Sunday, June 18. Hard to believe it's been so
long. I'm making plans, and hoping some of you can help. If any of you
would like to contribute new/unreleased music for the event, that would be
wonderful. I had a few such pieces for my 20th anniversary, and it meant a
lot to me. I'd also like to get people in the studio for an interview
and/or performance. If you're interested in helping me with either, let me
know and we'll work things out.

  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.

Secret Music News and call for submissions, February 2017

Hi -

 I have a couple of announcements about upcoming events here at Secret
Music. First, I'm pleased to welcome back pianist Rick Cutler to WVKR on Sunday, February 5
to talk about his new album and play music from his growing collection of
CD's. He's a nice guy and it's always good to see him. And on Sunday,
February 12, I welcome local group Sonic Skypilots to WVKR for the first
time for a live performance and interview. Theirs is a mixture of electric
and acoustic, jazz and ambient. I'm looking forward to meeeting them.

  Also, I'm approaching my 30th anniversary at WVKR. I started back in
June of 1987, back when I was but a wee bairn. Hard to imagine so much time has passed. I
have a couple of ideas that I'd like to toss your way and see what you
think. The first idea is that I'd like a live interview/performance. The
date I'm going to use for my celebration is Sunday, June 18 2017. I'd like
to keep it to one person/group for time constraints, though that's open to
discussion. If you're interested, please let me know.

  The other idea originally was some sort of commemorative release, though
I'm still debating that one. So for now, what I'm thinking is to have original music to
commemorate the event that I can play on my show that day. It could be
something specifically composed for the event, or simply something from
the vaults that would be interesting. For my 20th anniversary, someone
actually composed a piece in honor of the moment, and another musician
gifted me with a small batch of unreleased music, most of which is still
unreleased. I still treasure both of those. So the idea is to have unique
music for the celebration, something not previously available. I may want
to use some of it for a release at some point (probably a benefit for the
station), but that'd be discussed when the time comes. I especially like
the idea of local musicians contributing, but it's open to everyone. I'd
say a deadline for submissions would be the end of May, to give me time to
prepare. Again, if you're interested in contributing, please let me know.

  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.
