Help us meet our monthly goal:
This Sunday North Sea Surf Radio will broadcast the 4th edition of the oldest and most popular countdown lists on the station; the Classic Surf Top 101 and the Surf Revival Top 101. North Sea Surf Radio is very proud to welcome John Blair as honorary guest DJ who for this special occasion will present the Classic Surf Top 101. John Blair is widely known in the surf music scene as instigator of the first surf revival with his band Jon & The Nightriders and author of the Illustrated Discography of Surf Music. The Surf Revival Top 101 will for the first time be presented by DJ Jonpaul, who successfully hosted the first three editions of the Classic Surf Top 101, now handing over these duties to John Blair.
"When Niels asked me to present the 2016 edition of the Classic Surf Top 101, I was immediately enthusiastic. North Sea Surf Radio is an unprecedented radio station and a very valuable resource for the surf music scene. I am honored to make a small contribution for this end-of-the-year celebration of the best surf instrumentals of the 1960s. Having collected surf music since the early 60's and writing my Discography of Surf Music, there are a lot of facts and insights that can be shared with the listeners of the station. I look forward to presenting the best 101 surf instrumentals of the First Wave to NSSR listeners."

"John is one of the most knowledgeable persons when it comes to classic surf music and I am absolutely thrilled that he said yes when I asked him to present this list. Having actually grown up during the early 60's and owning one of the most extensive collections of classic surf music I am certain he will be able to make this 4th edition of our list an absolute joy to listen to. His six hour show will contain some highly interesting first hand anecdotes that our listeners are craving for.
After personally having presented the first three editions of the Surf Revival Top 101 I am happy to hand over this responsibility for the fourth edition to DJ Jonpaul, who did an amazing job on the Classic Surf Top 101 in previous years. I am off this year and will be nailed to the radio."

NSSR is very pleased to announce the addition of the very first female DJ to North Sea Surf Radio. Starting July 18th DJ Mz. Siren will be presenting her weekly show "Surf Shot" which will be broadcast every Saturday at 21:00 CET, after Django Deadman's "Hangnine FM". "Green Cookie Beach" will move one hour back to 22:00 CET.
Mz Siren's time is split between a small fishing town called Hastings on the South East coast of England and her secret lab drifting in space from where she broadcasts Surf Shot. She is the bass player in The Sine Waves and Thee Jezebels.
She also co-promotes The Fratcave with her partner Project X from The Sine Waves, they try to ensure visiting European surf and garage bands stop off at Hastings and entertain the locals at their monthly shindig.
And for those that cannot make it to Livorno, North Sea Surf Radio will be there all weekend!
