Playlist - April 5, 2013
"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.
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!
Click highlighted titles for details about new releases.
The 50th annual Merrie Monarch hula competition continued tonight (6PM HST) in Hilo on KFVE -- so today's "Aloha Kaua`i" show included lots of mele about Hilo town. You can watch the competition online, too. Hula kahiko on Friday night; hula auana and the awards ceremony Saturday.
