Peter Dillingham - 1947

In 1947, Peter Harding Dillingham, an investment banker, and son of Harold Garfield Dillingham, was 26 years old, and moonlighted as an accomplished steel guitarist.
With impressive skills and abundant resources, he was a student of Elmer Lee, and later Jake Keli’ikoa.
Peter decided to purchase a session with the Bell Records Company, and record his performance with Bill Akamuhou and his Nautical Hawaiians, one of the top post-war groups in Hawaii at the time.
The resulting 12 sides were distributed to his family and friends in a limited edition 78rpm pressing.
He re-released another limited edition on CD in 1999, which we debuted on Territorial Airwaves.
Today, 70 years after the initial release and 20 years since the re-release, we’ll share this memorable music with you.
