Hawaiian Recordings History - 49th State

George K. Ching began recording Hawaiian music on his record label, “49th State Records” in post WWII Honolulu.

George Ching then first sold the records out of his downtown Honolulu music store, “Maestro Music”.

34th Annual Territorial New Years Party

As the old year was ending in ancient times in Hawaii, Kahuna associated with certain he’eiau on the Western side of each inhabited Hawaiian island would watch for the appearance of “Na Huihui o Makali’i”, a star cluster that appears in the evening sky.
Once “Makali’i” was seen, the next new moon would begin the “Makahiki” season, a 4-month period when warfare was prohibited, and people celebrated with games and sports.
When Westerners arrived with their tradition of the New Year’s celebration, it coincided with the Hawaiians practice of Makahiki.
Thus, “Hau’oli Makahiki Hou” now says “Happy New Year!”
Today, we’ll spin some lyrical libations, as we share our 34th annual Territorial New Year’s Party.

Hawaiian Recordings History - H.T.P.

Hawaiian Transcription Productions (H.T.P.), became Hawaii’s first resident record label.
HTP was created in 1934, primarily to record radio station transcriptions and air checks.
It was located on the 3rd floor of the Advertising Publishing Company, next to Hawaii’s 1st radio station, KGU, which was also owned by the newspaper, The Honolulu Advertiser.
Eventually, HTP was turned into a profitable enterprise by marketing Hawaiian music to the public.
Over 100 of the records with the maile-ilima lei entwined around the outer edge of the label were released before the company finally folded during World War II.
