Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:reader],

All this week, during 97.9 WHAV’s spring membership drive, you can “Grow the Local News You Need and the Music You Love.”

Virginia recently sent in her membership donation. She added a note, saying “Thanks for the wonderful music and many features you give us.” You know what you pay for television—including extras like Netflix, your newspaper, your favorite drive-through coffee. So, what should your music bill be? How about $10 a month. That works out to only 33 cents a day for all the great music you hear on WHAV.

Become a member by clicking here. Greater Haverhill’s only public radio station and nonprofit local news service asks you to Grow the Local News You Need and Music You Love.
