‘Likelike’ Weisbarth was born in Haleiwa, of German and Hawaiian ancestry.
She lost both of her parents at an early age, so she was raised in the Salvation Army Home at 845 22nd Avenue, on the rise between Waialae and Kaimuki.
She graduated from Kalani High School in the first graduating class of 1961.
Then she and her husband, Frank Tomaselli, also raised at the orphanage, got a gig together at “Pat’s At Punalu’u”.
They were joined there by “Peachy” Espinda, one of their cottage parents at the orphanage.
In 1975, they recorded an album as: “Likelike & the Voices of Hawaii”.
Today, we’ll listen to that rare out-of-print recording from the Territorial Airwaves archives.
