Memories. Picture a magic box broadcasting voice & music from an exotic locale in the 30s & the 40s. Adults & kids alike hurrying home to gather round & sprawl on the floor in front of their huge console radio complete with short-wave band. Families turning the big dial to tune in & listen, spellbound, to the soothing & mystical sound of the surf, & the gentle lilt of the melodies being transported “live” into their living rooms from thousands of miles away. They would hum along & be magically transported to the Territory of Hawaii. Relive the exciting times & golden years when Hawaiian music dominated Hawaii’s radio. Distant memories captured by broadcasting legend & Hawaiian music historian Harry B. Soria, Jr. in honor of his families active role in Hawaiian radio since the very earliest days of broadcasting & of his radio show, Territorial Airwaves, 25th Anniversary. 20 true gems dating from 1936 into the 1970’s & a great place to start exploring real Hawaiian radio & song.
