Oldies from the Islands
We're going retro on Na Mele O Hawai'i this Sunday, September 22 at 2p.m. We will being playing Hawaiian music recorded before 1980. You'll hear music from Leonard Kwan, Ray Kane, Genoa Keawe, The Sons of Hawai'i, Hilo Hattie (Clara Haili) Gabby Pahinui and many,many more.
The music will be from from the early '40s to the mid '70s and feature myriad styles ranging from hapa-haole, swing to traditional Hawaiian and Ki Ho'alu (Slack Key Guitar). This should be an interesting show, as we explore the different styles of music that have influenced today's Hawaiian music.
Also you won't have to wait a month for my next show, as I will be back on air Sunday, September 29th at 2p.m.
