Add your ideas and talent to the mix
WVBI sounds best when it is local. Is there something you'd like to hear on your community radio station? Let us know about it. Or help make it. We can show you how to produce your own show live or recorded in our studios or even recorded in your home, whether your home is here or far away. That’s right. You don’t even have to be on the island to add your voice to the mix. No matter where you are it’s easy and fun to bring your ideas to life right here on WVBI.
We’re counting on it. As a non-profit, community radio station we depend on local supporters like you to keep the Voice of Beaver Island on the air. Please join your fellow islanders from near and far who are investing to assure the future of the best radio station on the planet.
