Secret Music Playlist, March 9, 2014

Hi -

  Here's my playlist for Sunday, March 9, 2014. Lots of great new stuff.
Also played a Far East Family Band album I picked up recently (Kitaro's first band). And I
played music from Marissa Nadler, who I got to see perform locally last
week. It was a great show and she has an amazing voice. Enjoy!

Secret Music News, March 2014

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 26
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. 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.                   

   We're still firmly in the grip of winter here in NY. It's been a long
 hard winter, and I can't wait for it to end. I stay warm and listen to music and hope that spring gets
here soon. If you're in the area or passing through and you'd like to stop
by on a Sunday morning for an interview or to perform live, let me know.
It's a lot of fun to get to know the people behind the music. Thanks to
all of you who wrote last month who wrote to catch me up on what you've
been doing or to send new music my way. I've got a lot of great things to
play for months to come. Communication is more important these days. It
gives musicians, DJ's, and listeners a chance to connect, to help one
another. That's never a bad thing. We can all help each other, and learn
from each other. I try to help out by playing music I feel passionate
about so that others can hear and enjoy it. If you have any questions for
me, or need help with anything, just ask. My time and resources are
limited, but I'll do what I can.

  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 February, 2014.
