HOME IS HEREHawaiian Music Archives
Wed., Dec. 28, 7:30 pm
Earlier this year, the Hawai‘i State Archives received two historic collections of records. One of the collections was from long-time radio personality and host of Territorial Airwaves, Harry B. Soria Jr. The other collection was from an Englishman who resided in Toronto, Canada named Michael Scott. In all, the collections equal roughly 20,000 records, with the earliest dating back to 1905. Contained within these priceless vinyl artifacts is much of the history of Hawaiian recorded music. Join us for a new episode of HOME IS HERE: Hawaiian Music Archives (Wed., Dec. 28, 7:30 pm)

Final Thought…
For 33 years at KHON2, I was blessed with the opportunity to share many beautiful and meaningful stories of our home. With each opportunity, came immense responsibility to be fair and accurate, and always done with respect and integrity. It was exciting and fulfilling to watch an idea develop and transform into a finished product for viewers to watch, enjoy, and in many cases, learn.
On the next Home is Here: Hawaiian Music Archives you will do all of the above and so much more. This month’s episode is one of the best produced, shot and edited programs I’ve EVER seen in local media. It is storytelling at its finest. Please join us and enjoy…
