The entire month of January, Ho`olohe Hou celebrates Hawaiian music in the 1950s!
Sunday, January 13th - We revisit the amazing steel guitarists of the 1950s including rarities from Barney Isaacs, Jules Ah See, David Keli`i, Billy Hew Len, Pua Almeida, Jerry Byrd, Danny Stewart, Lovey Lui Conn, Benny Rogers, and Joe Custino.
Sunday, January 20th - We reexamine the influence of 50's mainland jazz on Hawaiian music with such combos as the Richard Kauhi Quartet, the Kalima Brothers, Johnny Spencer and the Kona Coasters, and The Invitations. We celebrate the birthday of popular 50's vocalist Iwalani Kamahele. And we dedicate an entire hour to steel guitar wizard Billy Hew Len on the occasion of his birthday.
Sunday, January 27th - We look at the year that capped off the decade: 1959. Some of the most amazing recordings in the history of Hawaiian music were recorded and released in this single fantastic year including gems from Sterling Mossman, Chick Floyd, The Surfers, Ed Kenney, Pua Almeida, Alfred Apaka, Eddie Kamae, and The Invitations.
