Mahi’ai Beamer has passed away at the age of 88 on July 14, 2017.
I must apologize to the listeners of Territorial Airwaves for not producing this tribute show sooner.
Truth be told, this is a very painful loss for many of us who love Hawaiian music.
I opted to take some time to prepare my thoughts in order to pay tribute to one of my heroes appropriately.
So we’ll dive into our records archives to hear these classic 1959 recordings, and honor our aikane.
Today, 58 years later, we’ll share this music.
