ʻO ka wā i hala... tongiht's show is intended to transport us to the Hawaiʻi that once was in a time that seems long gone. These recordings are as old as the 1920s, and as new as the 1940s. Sounds that aren't heard anymore, I recently remarked to a good friend of mine that "I wish music still sounded like this." Can you believe, the year 1920 is exactly a century ago from today.

Every mele in tonight's show comes from the University of Hawaiʻi Hawaiian Collection, which is accessible only with a valid UH login. Luckily, as a graduate student, I have such a login, and can bring you a show full of these gems.
