Martha's Vineyard Radio

WMVY is a progressive radio station, broadcasting on the island of Martha's Vineyard, which is off of Cape Cod, Massachusettes.
They play a sensational, ecclectic mix of old and new rock, jazz and blues. Some of the artists featured on MWVY include Peter Gabriel, The Grateful Dead, Bruce Hornsby, Steely Dan, Todd Rundgren, Ryan Adams, Jonathan Brooke, John Mayer and Lucinda Williams.
They stream on the internet, through Abacast, at 20kbps, with a clear strong signal.
WMVY offers a quick launch for your desktop on this page.
The player tells you the artist, song title, and album title of the song they're playing... and the last 20 songs played! They think it looks pretty cool.(i'll take their word for it,i haven't downloaded it myself).

How about some free mp3 downloads, without the RIAA threaghtening your arrest? The Local Music Cafe contains free downloadable MP3's of all genres by Cape & Islands musicians. If you have a band local to the Cape Cod area, they also let you submit your music for possible air play.

Shows to check out:(all times are U.S. Eastern Time)
