Hagar's Cabo Wabo Radio Goes On Hiatus

HAGAR went on to explain his decision, "It's paradoxical that it's the success of the station that's the problem. It has snowballed and grown so fast and gotten so big that it has demanded an ever-increasing level of participation from me. I've had to put on the brakes. I'm simply too over-extended. I have a new album, a new studio, tours, CABO WABO CANTINAS, CABO WABO TEQUILA, we just opened our first SAMMY's BEACH BAR AND GRILL on MAUI, and there have just become too many things demanding my attention. I really regret having to prioritize things this way, but I haven't had time to participate so we're going to put some things on hold."
CABO WABO RADIO has been programmed by the legendary SHADOE STEVENS, and HAGAR added, "SHADOE built the most exciting and original station I've ever heard and exceeded our expectations on every level. In six months he took it from zero listeners to more than 130,000 in 100 countries, with 10,000 VIP members on our website, another 1,500 myspace friends, and listed as a Staff Favorite on iTunes, all with no marketing or advertising. He's amazing."
STEVENS, known for his creative diversity and exceptional output, said he was disappointed but will now be dedicating more time to his other projects which include several other radio formats in development for other clients, two television series, and a partnership with TONY HAWK on a major motion picture STEVENS created.
