Noteworthy events coming up on Martha’s Vineyard


Thanks to you

This Saturday, mvyradio is thanking and celebrating the people who donated money to allow the station to continue on the Internet.

“None of us was sure at the beginning of our campaign whether or not we would be successful in raising $600K necessary to keep mvyradio alive,” according to a press release. “But the pledges kept coming in, many with incredible, personal tales of the station’s importance to the community… We couldn’t have done it without you.”

The party is from 7 to 10 pm at the Ag Hall in West Tisbury. Bring desserts or drinks, and enjoy music by Mike Benjamin, Jemima James, Don Groover, Nancy Jephcote, Paul Thurlow, Tristan Israel, Wes Nagy, Dan Waters, Christian McNeill, and Erich Luening. Visit for more information.
