Radio Free Hawaii Back (On HD Radio)
April 9, 2008 at 11:35 AM (PT)
The eclectic format of RADIO FREE HAWAII is returning to HONOLULU via HD RADIO, as the HONOLULU STAR-BULLETIN's ERIKA ENGLE reports that CLEAR CHANNEL will put the format, in which listeners pick the music, on the HD-2 channel of Alternative KUCD (STAR 101.9)/HONOLULU starting MAY 24. Listeners will be allowed to vote on what music will be played on the station at www.hdradiofreehawaii.com. The station expects to be commercial free (and jockless) for about the first year.
NORM WINTER's original RADIO FREE HAWAII aired on KDEO (now VISIONARY RELATED MEDIA Top 40/Rhythmic KDDB (102.7 DA BOMB)) in 1991-94 and again from 1995-97, deriving its playlist from ballots submitted by listeners.
