Hawaiian Recordings History - Bell

William Bell Fredlund and Alice Pualeialoha Davis Fredlund created Bell Records in 1944, using Bill’s middle name of “Bell”.
The Fredlunds built a recording studio in a former military warehouse across the Ala Wai Canal from Waikiki.
The brilliant Young O. Kang became their recording engineer, and Alice’s brother, Willie, served as talent scout.
Between 1944 and 1950, Bell created an enormous catalog of Hawaii’s entertainers, many of whom were working in Waikiki.
Today, we’ll share some of those rarest recordings made in 1944 through 1950 with, “Hawaiian Recordings History – Bell Records.”
