    Long time fan of the Transmission and your hawaiiup podcast here…I just wanted to say the clip of your son singing was the cutest, sweetest thing ever. Thanks for sharing it with us 🙂 Keep up the great work on the podcast.

    If you like Rolling Stones songs with a country twang, try the following: “Dead Flowers” off 1971’s Sticky Fingers; “Country HonK” off 1969’s “Let It Bleed” and my favorite, “Far Away Eyes” off “Some Girls” from 1978.

    As great as the movie GREASE is, the accompanying soundtrack album is a must, a classic. Spawned 4 huge top 40 hits in 1978: “Grease” by Frankie Valli; “You’re the One That I Want” by John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John; “Hopelessly Devoted to You” by Olivia Newton John and “Summer Nights” by John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John; The tracks by Sha Na Na are fun too – those are the songs heard at the dance; Frankie Avalon does a good job with “Beauty School Dropout”; Avalon was actually there in the 1950s when his single “Venus” hit the top of the charts in 1959.

    Hey, Ryan. I couldn’t find your e-mail on HawaiiUP. Nevertheless, I hope your family is safe with the earthquake that I just saw on the news. God bless.
