HiUP #36 – Makahiki Hou

The thick smoke and a winter cold play havoc with my voice, but the show must go on! The first show of 2006 once again brings local news, views, and music. Jen tells us about every concert she’s ever been to (don’t worry, it’s not a long list), and my featured artists range from a sensual rock-and-roller in Kailua to a pop rock band in Canada that adds a Hawaiian twist. As a special treat, listen as the latter band brushes up on its Hawaiian pronunciation. I close with talk of the future of HawaiiUP, and with thanks and warm wishes in the new year.

    Thanks for continuing HawaiiUp! I’ve been an avid listener since show one and enjoy hearing the various musical guests and your experiences in Hawaii.

    Keep up the good work, and know that even though people don’t always give feedback, we’re still out here listening!
