Territorial Airwaves began broadcasting on June 13, 1979.
Shortly after, in 1980, Joseph Fernandez Kalahanauokalakaua Serrao released his debut recording.
Joseph covered several of his grandfather, Danny Ku’s, compositions.
Danny Ku was a successful steel guitarist and bandleader in the 1930s, 40s, & 50s.
As the Territorial Airwaves broadcast was in its infancy 36 years ago, we appreciated Joseph Serrao’s tribute to his grandfather.
Today, nearly 40 years later, we’ll share memorable selections from this groundbreaking release !
