Lena Waialeale Machado graced our world from October 16, 1903 to January 22, 1974.
In 1998, I partnered with Michael Cord of Cord International Records, to produce a compact disc featuring many of Lena’s memorable recordings. Her hanai daughter, Piolani Motta, collaborated with us to create Lena’s first authorized biography.
Today, we’ll hear that memorable recording, which received 2 awards in the 1998 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards, courtesy of the Territorial Airwaves archives.
