Secret Music News, October 2011

Hi -

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 24
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 on the lookout for new
and interesting music to play on my show. If you have something you think
I'd be interested in, feel free to send it to the address below or email
me for more info. If you're a local musician or just passing through the
beautiful Hudson Valley region and you'd like to stop by for a live
interview and/or performace, drop me a line and we'll work something out.
Also, if you'd like to send me downloads of your releases in lieu of
actual CD's, that's fine with me, too. Just send me an email and let me
know. Thanks.

First, we had our annual pledge drive in September, and I raised over $ 500. Thanks to all the listeners that called in, and thanks to all the labels and musicians who contributed CD's to the cause. It makes a difference and I'm grateful
to all of you.

Second, I got to see two great shows this past month. The first was
Electro Music 2011, in Huguenot, New York. It's a fun place, with lots of people I know, and great music as well. The other was Equinoxygen 2011, in Hackensack, New
Jersey. This was a one day event showcasing all different kinds of electronic music. I helped with setup and breakdown, and all the little things to do during the course of the day. And saw a lot of great music, too. The highlight was Neil Nappe, who hadn't performed in over 10 years, and put on an amazing performance. Thanks to Darren Bergstein for making it happen.

I've got some interesting upcoming events here at Secret Music. On
October 16, Shane King of redgreenblue will be my guest, playing music from his CD's. And in November, I will be hosting interviews with both Air Sculpture and Alpha
Wave Movement. Stay tuned for more details.

There's a new service out called which allows you to record
radio shows (like mine). The website has more info. but it's basically a free service much like a Tivo, which allows you to select and record radio shows for future listening. Finally something for those of you who aren't around to listen
in on a Sunday morning.

For more info or weekly playlists, check out my website below. I'm also
on Facebook, so look for me there too. Here's my top 20 playlist for September 2011.

Upcoming Secret Music Events

Hi -

There's some interesting stuff coming up in the next couple of months on Secret Music, so stay tuned.

First, on Sunday, October 16, I welcome Shane King of redgreenblue to the studio, to talk about his music and play from his CD's. He's a great guy and fun to talk to. Should be a great time. Here's a link to his website:

Next, on Sunday, October 30 will be my annual scary Halloween music special. Lots of really creepy sounds for you on a Sunday morning. And it's my birthday, too. Let me know if you have anything special you want to hear that day.

After that, on Sunday, November 6, I'm likely to have special guests Air Sculpture in the studio. We're still working out the details, but they'll be here to talk or play live, depending on how things go. Here's a link to their website.

Finally, on Sunday, November 27, Greg Kyryluk of Alpha Wave Movement will be my guest on the show. He's been around for a long time and has a large body of interesting electronic music that he's produced. Here's a link to his website.

Upcoming Concerts

Hi -

Here's some info on two upcoming shows those of you in the Secret Music listening area might be interested in.

The first is a concert in NYC on Sunday, October 30 (my birthday!) by a new group called A Winged Victory For The Sullen. The group is a duo consisting of Adam Wiltzie of Stars Of The Lid and Dustin O'Halloran, who had a great album earlier this year called Lumiere. They have a new album out on Kranky and it's fantastic. I'll be going to this one if anyone wants to go.

The other show is a concert by British retro Berlin School electronic group Air Sculpture. They'll be appearing at Darren Bergstein's One Thousand Pulses house concert series on Saturday, November 5. I've never seen them live before, so this ought to be fun.

Secret Music Playlist, October 2, 2011

Hi -

Here's my playlist for October 2, 2011. Had a great time at the
Equinoxygen festival this weekend. Lots of great music, and got to meet all
kinds of cool people. Sorry I wasn't around on September 25, but I needed a break. I'll be back on October 9 with lots of great new music, and on October 16, Shane
King of redgreenblue will be my special guest. Enjoy!

Hi -

I want to tell you about a new service for all of you who want to record my radio show. DAR.FM is a free service that allows you to sign up for and record radio programs (including mine). Once you sign up, you select a program to record and it will record it for you for future listening, sorta like Tivo. You have to select it before the date you wish to record (no going back and recording past shows, sorry). You can then listen online, or even download. I haven't tried it yet, but it still sounds like a great idea. Here's a direct link, as well as a link to the main site itself. Enjoy!
