Summer Wind Radio
"This... is Summer Wind Radio!"

Summer Wind Radio is broadcast from the beautiful South Sea Island of Wananuki, somewhere in the South Pacific. Our shows feature all the music from the schooner Summer Wind, the Small Tall Ship that winters here on the island. It's sailing music at its best! We play sea shanties from the morning History Sails, your favorite Trop Rock beach music from the afternoon Tropical Sails, and the most romantic music from the evening Sunset Sails. If you can't go sailing on the Summer Wind, it's the next best thing to being here! Welcome aboard!

Tune in to our newest shows every day, Lunch Break with all the newest music at Noon, The Buffett Buffet at 2pm, followed by The Songwriters Showcase highlighting a new artist each week here on Summer Wind Radio!
