Territorial Airwaves - "Home At Hanalei" - 3/16/2012
Hanalei is the name of the valley with high mountains and a river that carves a long course to the coastal plain, emptying into the sea at Hanalei Bay, which glistens like a jewel on Kauai’s northern coast.
The Birkmyre Estate was used as the French Planter’s home in the 1957 movie, “South Pacific”.
The Hanalei Plantation Hotel was later built on the site.
The “House of Happy Talk” at the Hanalei Plantation Hotel always featured memorable Hawaiian music.

Territorial Airwaves - "Slack Sax" - 3/09/2012
Adolphe Sax of Belgium invented the saxophone in Paris in 1842.
Adolphe Sax then re-tooled the military bad format by replacing the oboe, bassoons, and French horns, with saxophones, producing a more homogenous sound.
American musicians had picked up the sax by 1896.
In Hawaii, Johnny Noble’s Moana Hotel Orchestra incorporated the sax in Hawaiian music in 1920.
By the 1930s, Hawaiian bands featured the saxophone on every island.
Join us now for “Slack Sax”, as we share a memorable 1984 recording in tribute to Hawaii’s love of the saxophone!
