Welcome To Our New Cape & Islands Listeners!

Alison Shaw's photo of a skiff on Sengekontacket Pond won first place in the pictorial photo category at the annual New England Newspaper and Press Association awards on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013.

This photo of a skiff on Sengekontacket Pond, taken by Alison Shaw and printed in the Vineyard Gazette newspaper, won first place in the pictorial photo category at the annual New England Newspaper and Press Association awards on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013.

At the end of today’s show, Here & Now host Robin Young welcomed our new listeners on Cape Cod and the Islands, and the South Coast of Massachusetts, via WBUA Martha’s Vineyard 92.7 FM.

“I’m looking at Alison Shaw’s picture of a skiff in today’s Vineyard Gazette. Beautiful,” Robin said. “What a privilege to be in your community.”

    Loved hearing your greetings to Martha’s Vineyard listeners!  I lived there for 12 years and my daughter is still there.  It is a special place and I’m delighted to know that their station can listen to the same programs I’m hearing here in Michigan.   Alison Shaw’s photograph is, indeed, lovely – as all all her photographs.  She’s a friend of my former husband who was also a Vineyard photographer.  Now I’m a bit homesick for the Island!!

    The station IDs are getting really long.  I think communities are served better locally.  I’m sure the Martha’s Vinyard residents are as uninterested in Boston’s weather as I am about theirs.
