Kolomone, or Solomon, Kalamuhia Kekipi Ke Ali’ika’apuni Ku Keala O Ka Mahanahana Bright, was born on November 9, 1909, and he left us at the age of 83, on April 27, 1992.
Andrew Kealoha Cummings was born on August 2, 1913, and he left us at the age of 81, on June 23, 1995.
These 2 gentlemen entertained together often for Hawaiian Airlines in the 1950s and 1960s, so the always enterprising Andy Cummings put out a record of the two performing some of their hits, in the late 1960s, on the Hawaiian Melodies label. Although they were aging from their 50s to their 60s, this final session is a memorable recording.
Today, we’ll listen to that rare out-of-print recording from the Territorial Airwaves archives.
