    Best Hawaii Up Yet! I’m listening to it for a third time even as I write this. Looks like I’ll be adding a few CD’s to the collection ASAP!

    This has been my favorite HawaiiUP (other than the one where you played my message! – Thanks btw).

    My husband and I listened to it in the car the other day and it was such great music! We both enjoyed it very much. I especially liked the last song that played – your theme music, very cool!

    Have an awesome Christmas – Mele Kalikimake!

    This is a great slack key program — I’ve never heard anything like this on the radio. Imagine — musicians from out of town included!

    Trouble is, Ryan, you’re setting a high standard here. I can’t help hoping you’ll do more like this one.

    I’m keeping this on my hard disk to play again.

    Your best ever show…. although I enjoy your news and info on the ‘regular’ shows, this sort of thing is great.

    I made a CD for my bride to listen to so as to get her ready for our next visit to our Hawaii home next month.
