HiUP #45 – Lost ‘Elepani

Saturday, September 16th, 2006

A very special treat for HawaiiUP listeners today, as I sit down with Jorge Garcia and Daniel Dae Kim, stars of ABC’s hit filmed-in-Hawaii series “LOST.” Where does Jorge go for poke? Why does Daniel listen to HPR? How are fans and paparazzi different in the Hawaii? Find out in this early excerpt from a very special interview where we talk about life in the islands.

  • 00:20 Introduction
  • 02:05 HawaiiUP Headlines:
    Dog the Bounty Hunter Arrested, Waikiki Beach on Monopoly Board, Honolulu’s Worst Traffic Jam Ever, Hawaii Coffee Harvest, Waikiki Crime Down, Hawaii Life Expectancies Longest in Nation, Hawaii Among America’s Favorite States
  • 18:30 “My Sweet Pikake Lei” from Live from Bob’s Ohana by Uncle Henry Kalana Kamae
  • 22:35 “LOST” Stars on Life in Hawaii
  • 36:00 Wrap-Up

To see if copies of “Live from Bob’s Ohana” are still available, call Uncle Henry or Aunty Liz at 562-423-1325 or 562-841-3664. You can also catch him live almost every Friday at Bob’s Okazuya in Gardena, California. Just call (310) 515-2250 to see if he’s in the house.

Technical Note: With this episode, we’re back at 96kbps encoding for a smaller file. The sound quality is lower and noticable on headphones, but so far the improvement at 128kbps isn’t worth the extra space or longer download times. Let me know if you have further thoughts on this obscure issue!
