34th Annual Territorial Christmas Party

The words “Mele Kalikimaka” are a phonetic translation of “Merry Christmas” when Westerners first brought the custom of Christmas to Hawaii.
It coincided with the Hawaiian traditional observance of “Makahiki”.
As the Hawaiians gradually embraced the concept of Christmas, they turned the holiday greeting into words that rolled more easily off their tongues…..Mele Kalikimaka!

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.

Hawaiian Recordings History - Decca

Decca Records was a British record label established in 1929 by Edward Lewis.
The U.S. branch of the label was introduced in late 1934, and in the same year Hawaiian music began to be recorded in the Decca’s Los Angeles studios.
The name “Decca” dates back to a portable gramophone called the “Decca Dulcephone” patented in 1914.
That company was eventually renamed “The Decca Gramophone Co.,Ltd.”, and later shortened to the now familiar, “Decca”.
