We return to 1979, when the Territorial Airwaves program was launched as a weekly radio show.
It was during the era of the Hawaiian Renaissance, when young Hawaiians began looking to their cultural roots, and Hawaiian culture was again flourishing.
Early in this period, the music was influenced by folk and pop, but along the way the revival of Hawaiian performing arts saw renewed interest in the Hula, the Ukulele, Slack Key Guitar, and Steel Guitar, plus Falsetto singing.
Today, well launch a mini-series and listen to some of our out-of-print recordings from the recorded legacy of the Hawaiian Renaissance.
