Capt. Nick Nicholson

Capt. Nick

Surf 17 welcomes Capt. Nick as part of our on air DJ personalities. The Capt. specializes in Trop-Rock which is the music made famous by musician Jimmy Buffet. Nick is a walking encyclopedia of this style of music. For this reason, he was chosen to spin the cool beach sounds here on our station.

Capt. Ron Kay

Capt. Ron Kay2

It was Cap’t Ron Kay’s big sister who inadvertently lit the fuse to his radio interest explosion. Ron was only 9 years old when Carolyn, who was just becoming a teenager, became a regular winner of a weekly contest on the local radio station. One of the prizes was to be the guest host of the next week’s show. The whole family would be at the radio station whenever Carolyn announced the top ten songs, and the future Cap’t Ron had his nose pressed up against the studio window, deciding right then and there -- “That’s what I wanna do!”

Tim Baker

Tim Baker

Tim Baker was born and raised in Rhode Island. He was exposed to music at an early age thanks to his hippy, older brothers and was the only kid in the third grade to know who Creedence Clearwater Revival was and what Woodstock meant.

His musical influences started with the Beatles and the music of the 60s and then progressed through Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and such in the 70s. Although he loves all forms of music his go-to music is the Rock and Roll of his youth.
