I began working with Michael and Maryanne Cord in 1991.
Our dream was to take recordings from Territorial Airwaves archives, restore them using newly developed state of the art computer technology, and release them as compact discs, for all Hawaiian music enthusiasts to enjoy and learn from.
We felt that the music must once again be heard, and that the Hawaiian music community would appreciate it.
And we were right!
After releasing CDs saluting Johnny Almeida, Andy Cummings, & Linda Dela Cruz, Michael Cord decided to create a 25th anniversary commemorative disc for the Territorial Airwaves radio show.
Today, we’ll hear memorable selections from our CD release in 2004, courtesy of the Territorial Airwaves archives.
