Tonight at the Blaisdell Arena, the Summer Soul Fest is taking place. Last week we spoke with the headliners, The Stylistics. This week we continue with a conversation with two more acts: The Shirelles' Beverly Lee and The Crystals' DeeDee Kenniebrew. These two girl group pioneers told HPR's Dave Lawrence stories that stretched back to a very different era.
The Shirelles, The Manhattans, The Crystals and The Stylistics perform tonight at the Blaisdell Arena for the Summer Soul Fest. Hear the complete interviews with The Shirelles and The Crystals, plus check out some of their classics, below. Listen to our recent interview with The Stylistics here.
HPR-1 has been partially restored to O'ahu's North Shore and much of Kaua'i; we are working on an electrical problem at the Mt. Ka'ala site and once that's been resolved, repairs can be made to restore full HPR-1 signal strength. All other transmitters are operating normally.
