WCAI "Pub Night" Draws a Crowd in Oak Bluffs

It was standing room only at the Martha's Vineyard Chowder Company when Stephan Junker, Mindy Todd, Shelley Christiansen and other on-air personalities from public radio station WCAI paid a visit Wednesday night. Were you there?

Cape and Islands public radio station WCAI, a subsidiary of Boston's WGBH, kicked off its 2013 "Pub Nights" season Wednesday at the Martha's Vineyard Chowder Company in Oak Bluffs.

The two-hour gathering at the bar gave Islanders a chance to mingle with their favorite WCAI radio personalities, including Stephan Junker, Mindy Todd and Shelley Christiansen.

Heard on FM frequencies 90.1, 91.1 and 94.3 and online at capeandislands.org, WCAI is virtually the only remaining terrestrial radio station to cover Martha's Vineyard news and issues.

Low-power Island station WVVY broadcasts on 93.7 FM, but its signal fades outside Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs. It can also be heard online at  wvvy.org.

Longtime local station WMVY went online-only Feb. 9 after its radio frequency was sold to Boston's WBUR, which told locals last week that it has no plans to localize its programming for the Vineyard.

How many Martha's Vineyard residents do you recognize in our 30-second video from Pub Night with WCAI? Tell us in the comments.
