Soundtrack to the Holidays, Hawaiian Style
Sadly, as you know, my KCSN radio show "Hawaiian Eye" (later retitled "Aloha Friday Radio") went off the air this fall as part of a format tweak.
One of my most popular episodes year after year was my pre-Christmas edition of "Hawaiian Eye," in which I played wall-to-wall Christmas tunes from the islands. Slack key, reggae, ska, traditional, contemporary -- all the forms were represented.
By popular demand, here's a copy of last year's holiday edition of "Hawaiian Eye," cut into 6 pieces for easy streaming. It's a nice alternative to the same-old, same-old on KOST or KRTH. Put it on in the background today as you finish up your Christmas Eve chores -- perhaps it'll calm you down, and get you in the mood. Mele Kalikimaka!!
