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 each weekend, Party in Paradise with Todd Sparks and Rock'n'Roll Cheri, followed by The Countdown, our look at this weeks best new Trop Rock music here on Summer Wind Radio!
