Hula Records was founded in 1947 by noted Hapa Haole composer & bandleader, Don McDiarmid, Sr.
He issued a set of his hits on 78-rpm discs, under the brand name of “Hula”.
In 1960, his son, Don McDiarmid, Jr., reactivated the name, “Hula Records”, and began recording and releasing 33 1/3-rpm LP recordings.
“Hula Records” has since released hundreds of Hawaiian music recordings.
Today, Hula Records is operated by Don McDiarmid, III.
“Flip” continues the visions of his grandfather and father into a new era of digital music.
Today, we’ll share some of the rarest recordings made on the Hula Records label, on “Hawaiian Recordings History – Hula Records”!
