Streaming allows us to share all that is Galveston not only with the Houston area, but worldwide.” is available on any tablet, smart speaker, mobile device or computer browser at and already has had listeners from nearly every state in the USA and six countries.

“Our goal is to provide a little something for everyone” said O’Neill. “We have an upbeat music mix in the mornings, an Island beach sound during the day and 70’s at 7pm, 80’s at 8pm and harder rock after 9pm with Pirate Radio Galveston. There is so much great music out there that isn’t being played any more, so we get into many different genres, even digging up a nugget of buried treasure every hour, and updates on Galveston events.”

RadioGalveston was launched by the Galveston Experience Company which also serves as the studio location at 15 th and Seawall, midway between Stewart Beach and the Pleasure Pier.

O’Neill has been involved in media, broadcasting and syndication since 1975 in both on-air and broadcast management roles, and was named Billboard Magazine “Personality of the Year”.
