Playlist - April 18, 2013
A list of ALL 2013 Na Hoku Hanohano 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 always 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.
