Summer sounds

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:37 pm on 20 January 2016

What are the sounds of a Kiwi summer? Cicadas? Crashing surf? The jingle of the Mr Whippy ice-cream van?

Sarah Johnston at Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision shares recordings from RNZ's commercial past the sound archives which evoke memories of summers past.
