Decca Hi-Fi

An American branch of the British record company, Decca Records, was launched in 1934.
Soon, numerous Hawaiian stars were recording Decca 78-rpms in the 1930s and 1940s.
Decca embraced the new post-war record formats, adopting the 33 1/3-rpm LP in 1949, and the 45-rpm singles format a couple of years later.
As 78-rpms were phased out in the mid-1950s, the new formats used Hi-Fi technology, the pre-cursor to stereo.
Today, we’ll celebrate the early recorded legacy of Decca Hi-Fi from the Territorial Airwaves archives.

Andy Iona & his Islanders

Andrew Aiona was born on January 1, 1902, and he died at the age of 64 on November 9, 1966.
Young Andy spent 2 years at Kamehameha Schools, but quit due to difficulties he experienced because of the loss of his right thumb in an accident.
Sent to the Reformatory For Boys, his skill on the saxophone earned him a soloist position in the Royal Hawaiian Band under the direction of Mekia Kealakai.
He also attended Henri Berger’s Private School of Music, where Andy learned the Arthur Lange Method of Arranging.
In 1921, at the age of 19, he traveled to Los Angeles, California and found success playing saxophone.

"Squeeze" Kamana & his Hawaiian All-Stars

John Maia Kamana, Sr. was born on November 6, 1903 in North Kohala, Hawaii.
We lost him at the age of 64 on October 23, 1968.
As a child, young John often didn’t have money for school lunch, so his girl classmates would share their food with him.
He’d reciprocate with a hug, or a squeeze.
For the rest of his life, everyone called him ‘Squeeze’.
As a key member of Al Kealoha Perry’s Singing Surfriders, ‘Squeeze’ spent many years as a mainstay of the “Hawaii Calls” radio program.
The recording we’ll hear now was produced & directed by ‘Squeeze’, and he also chose the songs, the arrangements, and the players.
Plus he played ukulele, and sang when necessary.
Today, we’ll celebrate the early recorded legacy of ‘Squeeze’ Kamana & his Hawaiian All-Stars from the Territorial Airwaves archives.
