Aloha from Ron Mizutani, President and CEO…
Wednesday, November 2, 7:30 pm
Starting in November, we are reaching into our vault to share vintage programs. These programs will get new life as PBS Hawai‘i Classics, broadcast most Wednesdays at 7:30 pm. They will be available on-demand at  For some, these PBS Hawai‘i Classics will be a trip down memory lane re-sharing of stories that should not be lost to time.
For many who have never seen these programs, the classics are a glimpse into the past that provides history, perspective or a simple pleasure.  Programs in this inaugural month of PBS Hawai‘i Classics include stories about lei making on Moloka‘i, exploring Wai‘anae on West O‘ahu and tales from the Hāmākua coast of Hawai‘i Island.
This week on “What School You Went? (Wed., Nov. 2) Local comedian Tumua Tuinei stops by the PBS Hawaiʻi studio to talk about his meteoric rise to stardom.

Final Thought…
Humor is subjective. There is no right or wrong definition to what someone thinks is funny. Some believe clean comedy is easier to laugh at, but foul language and subjects that border on the obscene, make people laugh too. Truth is making people laugh is a gift, doing so without using vulgar language is a choice. Local comedian Tumua Tuinei made that choice before he ever hit the stage, and has stayed true to his decision.
On the next “What School You Went?” we’ll hear why Tumua Tuinei believes he’s doing his part to make people healthy. After all, laughter is healing.
