HOCHMAN HAWAII-ONE launches a traditional HAWAIIAN music station, "THE HAWAIIAN 107.9," in KAUAI on KTOH-HD3-K300AT/KALAHEO, HI.
THE HAWAIIN 107.1 is "KAWAII's ONLY TRADITIONAL HAWAIIAN MUSIC STATION” playing native HAWAIIAN language music from the '50s, '60s and '70s. Some of the artists featured include DON HOE, AMY KILAKI, BROTHER ISRAEL and HAPA, along with the best new local music from the Islands.
The station launched on FRIDAY (2/12) with a local prayer from a Priestess to bless the new station.
OM/PD DANNY HILL tells ALL ACCESS, "I'm excited to announce that KAUAII finally has a traditional HAWAIIAN radio station! The HAWAIIAN 107.9! The response has been huge! Its been over two decades since this island had a full time 24 hour HAWAIIAN music and visitor information station! With local legends like "LARRY RIVERA" walking in and saying hi ... it feels like the perfect match. H.HAWAII MEDIA has finally given traditional HAWAIIAN music back to the people of KAUAI."
