Dewey Nicks

Find the entire Off The Road series at hawaiipublicradio.org/offtheroad.

Today, HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence welcomes back global music legend of the Tijuana Brass Band, the A in A & M Records, and sometime Hawai‘i resident Herb Alpert to the Off The Road series.

Herb joined us from his home in Malibu, California, where he was when we connected earlier in the year. He’s back with a new album, Catch the Wind.

In part one of our feature with Herb, he updates us on what he’s been up to since last being on the show and discusses the new release. He also bares his soul on his concern for the current state of affairs in the U.S., vaccinations and the sense of division felt by many in the nation.

Tomorrow we’ll hear more about the new album, some great stories about Herb’s connections to artists including The Beatles, and Herb will even offer us an exclusive musical performance of selections from Catch the Wind.


Hear Herb’s complete interview from earlier in the year.

Off The Road started in April 2020 when the pandemic led to a halt in the touring entertainment industry. Connecting with artists around the world since, we’ve offered intimate conversations and many exclusive musical performances with some of the biggest names in music, spanning many genres, eras and styles. Some of the highlight artists we’ve welcomed so far include Taj Mahal, Judy Collins, John McLaughlin, Carlos Santana, Linda Ronstadt, Al Di Meola, 10,000 Maniacs, Alice Cooper, Soul Asylum, Deep Purple, Third World, George Benson, Heart, Joe Satriani, The Doors, Randy Brecker, Peter Frampton and System of a Down.

Dave Lawrence is the local host of All Things Considered, Road Stories (formerly Off the Road), and Stargazer.
