Low-power station WVVY, 93.7 FM in Vineyard Haven, resumed its broadcast and internet streams this week. A festive fundraiser for the all-volunteer community station is planned for Saturday night, the Martha's Vineyard Times reports.
The Vineyard's only public radio station is back: WVVY, the low-power FM community-run station whose motto is "You never know what you'll hear next," has returned to its 93.7 FM frequency and its internet stream.
A festive fund-raiser and "relaunch" for WVVY is planned for Saturday night in Oak Bluffs, kicking off with a 20-piece marching band leading a procession up Circuit Avenue, according to the Martha's Vineyard Times.
The closest thing to a college radio station on Martha's Vineyard, WVVY airs a free-form stream of music from all genres save classical, with locally-hosted theme programs like "Brazilian Wax" on Tuesday afternoons, roots-rocking "American Circus" Wednesdays and Sunday shows devoted to hip-hop and reggae.

The station's low-power signal comes in best on car radios in Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs and West Tisbury. Further east and west, the signal becomes overwhelmed by Cape Cod and Rhode Island frequencies.
