Playlist - April 12, 2013
Today's broadcast featured tracks from many 2013 Na Hoku Hanohano final nominees -- and one lovely new release! A list of ALL nominees, including links to free sound clips, has been posted online.
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. There is also a page full of websites which offer lyrics and/or translations of island songs. And be sure to visit the MELE.COM Concert Calendar page to see if any of your favorite island musicians are headed your way!
"Aloha Kaua`i" brings you the music of Hawai`i -- from yesterday, today, and tomorrow -- culling from my personal library of hundreds of vinyls, cassettes and CDs. The broadcasts are live on Kaua`i Community Radio every Thursday and Friday 7-9am (HST). On Kaua`i, tune your radio to 90.9FM (north shore), 92.7FM (Moloa`a and Anahola), 91.9FM island-wide.
The show broadcasts live online, too -- listen at kkcr.org.
