WCAI's new look
Heather Goldstone / WCAI

2012 was an exciting year here at 3 Water Street. As the year draws to a close, we're looking back at some of the most memorable moments. From favorite commentaries to new shows, and even a new building, here are our picks for the Top 12 of 2012. 

  1. WCAI gets a facelift - WCAI is proud to call the historic Davis House in Woods Hole home. But this old house was in desperate need of some updating, both inside and out. Over the past year, we've restored the original wood clapboard siding, added a front porch, and made the first two floors of the building handicap-accessible. It's been a long process, but we're prouder than ever. You're always welcome to stop by and see the results for yourself. Otherwise, you can WATCH THE SLIDESHOW >>

Dancing for a Cure

Looking for something great to do this weekend? Dancing for a Cure is lighting up the stage with a holiday fundraiser. You have a choice of Nutcrackers. On Martha's Vineyard, it's the Beatles... almost! And Travis Chandler's Christmas Cavalcade promises 5 hours of locally grown music.

On the hunt for something to do this weekend? The Sandwich Glass Museum is "Celebrating Snowglobes," the Cultural Center of Cape Cod offers a Celtic take on the holidays, and on Martha's Vineyard, "Teddy Bear Suite" is raising money for the Boys and Girls Club.
