Aku Records - J. Akuhead Pupule

Herschel Laib Hohenstein was born in Brooklyn, New York on April 14, 1917.
After several name changes and great success as a radio announcer on Honolulu airwaves, Hal Lewis passed away at the age of 66 on July 21, 1983.
In 1946, just after the end of WWII, Hal Lewis was an out-of-work violinist in San Francisco.
He took a violinist gig on the S.S. Matsonia to Hawaii.
In Honolulu, he took a staff announcer job at KGMB, but was fired after only 2 months for insubordination.
After writing prose for the ILWU, and jokes for Hilo Hattie, he got the morning DJ slot at KPOA radio.
Once Aku’s Yiddish humor was unleashed, Honolulu airwaves would never be the same again.
Today, we’ll hear a rare set of 78rpm records that he made in the early 1950s on his own Aku Records label, some featuring Alfred Apaka & the Moana Serenaders.

The Invitations - with Billy May Orchestra

A pair of ex-members of Richard Kauhi’s Quartette joined some talented young musicians in 1958 to form a sensational harmony group called “The Invitations”.
Buddy Fo, Sonny Kamaka, Johnny Costello, Clem Low, and Alec Kaeck, as the Invitations, were named Hawaii’s “Best New Group” for their 1959 “R.S.V.P.” LP on Liberty Records.
However, a 2nd LP was recorded on that same trip to Hollywood in 1959, combining the Invitations with the Billy May Orchestra.
Liberty Records released that 2nd LP in 1960 to follow up on the group’s success, but that LP is quite rare now.
Today, we’ll hear that 2nd rare Liberty Records LP of the Invitations with the Billy May Orchestra.

A young woman born and raised in Honolulu, traveled all the way to Paris, France, to find a new life.

Eventually, Kilohana packed it all up and brought it back home to Manoa, O’ahu, Hawaii.
