MVYRADIO is a proud sponsor of Beach Road Weekend!
Since 1983, WMVY has operated on a special little Island off the coast of Massachusetts. Independent and eclectic, not unlike the local populace, the station has always remained true to the vision of being a Voice For The Vineyard.
The station's roots stretch back to the 1970s, but it was May 1983 that WMVY, as you would recognize it, sprung to life, with live DJs and a loose musical format wrapped less around hits and more around quality, under-appreciated artists.
In 1998 the station became one of the first broadcast radio stations in the country to stream. In 2013 the station transitioned to an independent, listener-supported, 501c3 non-profit, and continued its tradition of playing eclectic, under-appreciated artists, while re-affirming its commitment to being A Voice For The Vineyard.
Today, the station is still run by staffers who've been with the station 15, 20, even 30 years. The stream goes far and wide---over half of the station's donors are from outside the 88.7 FM broadcast area. And it all still springs from that special little Island off the coast of Massachusetts.
