Playlist - January 11, 2013
"Aloha Kaua`i" brings you the music of Hawai`i -- from yesterday, today, and tomorrow -- culling from my personal library of vinyls, cassettes and CDs. The broadcasts are live on Kaua`i Community Radio every Thursday and Friday 7-9am (HST). Listeners on-island can tune to 90.9FM (north shore), 92.7FM (Moloa`a and Anahola), 91.9FM island-wide -- or listen online at kkcr.org. For lyrics and translations to island mele, visit huapala.org.
Free sound clips and details about the CDs you hear on "Aloha Kaua`i" can be found at MELE.COM -- with a search engine to help you find your favorite musicians, songs, album titles, and styles of island music.
