HiUP #30 – Food Faves

Sunday, October 30th, 2005

Show number thirty comes in a bit late, and lacking the sweet sound of Jen’s voice. Still, I soldier on, sharing some great rock music and giving away prizes. Hear what HawaiiUP listeners like to eat, and what the “Lost” cast prefer as well. In the news: Maui man accused of espionage, car crashes baggage claim, Lingle backs bill on leaving kids in cars, Abercrombie mulls run for governor, and another gas price update.

HiUP #29 – Rainy Day

Got Lost?

Saturday, October 1st, 2005

As I mentioned in the last show, we’re taking a break this week. Actually, it’s our ‘fourth week hiatus,’ anyway, but it’s just as well, as I’m talked out after putting together “The Transmission,” our spinoff podcast about ABC’s hit television series, “Lost.” If you absolutely must hear my wife’s sexy voice, that’s the place to find it right now!
