Stanley continues tonight at theHonokaʻa People's Theatre, and Saturday on Kauai at Porter Pavilion.

In yesterday's segment, we heard about the music legend's absolutely frightening COVID story about being in China itself at the start of the andemic; how time off due to the closures led to hisIntegral Arts Academy; and a classic story about performing on TV with the late Robert Palmer; see video in yesterday's part one of this feature. Also in the piece and below, hear some music he recorded at HPR's Atherton Studio, including Stanley playing guitar and piano at the same time!

Today we conclude with more fascinating stories about being up close and personal with country superstar Kenny Rogers, Beatles producer George Martin, and Jackson family members Janet and Tito Jackson!
