Classical Pacific - October 3, 2017 - Pledge Drive Edition

John C. Zak

Aloha pumehana, I’m John Kalani Zak, host of Classical Pacific on HPR 2.
In Hawaii,  one often hears the word “kuleana.” It’s a multi-layered word that means “privilege”  and/or “responsibility.” When one is part of a community or a family, those elements are very meaningful and important. It’s our kuleana at Hawaii Public Radio to do everything in our power to bring you the finest of the world’s music, news and information, and we take our task very seriously. But, kuleana is reciprocal. If you gain value from the programming you receive on Hawaii Public Radio, respectfully, we suggest that it is your kuleana to nurture it. HPR 2 is the only broadcast source for classical music in Hawaii. Isn’t it worth five or ten dollars a month to nurture it, perhaps more? We hope you will agree that the answer is “Yes.” Call 944-8800 to make a pledge or pledge online on this website, hawaiipublicradio.org. Mahalo, and keep listening.

John Kalani Zak, the son of an airline executive father and a journalist mother, was born in Washington D. C. He has lived in and traveled to many locations around the globe, and is delighted to call Hawaiʻi his home.
