Radio legend Ron Jacobs came home from KGB Radio in San Diego, after a lengthy mainland career, and began broadcasting on KKUA radio in Honolulu.
He brought the “Home Grown” concept with him, and it became an instant hit in Hawaii.
The series of albums, numbers one through four, provided undiscovered Hawaii singers, instrumentalists, and composers, with an outlet for their creativity, and served as a benefit for “Habilitat”, a place of change.
Today, we’ll listen to rare out-of-print recordings from Territorial Airwaves archives.
