Three transplanted Hawaiian musicians came together in Los Angeles, California. In 1951, they took a gig together at the “Tahitian Hut”, using the name, “The Polynesians”.
Harry Baty, Sam Ka’apuni, and Bob Nichols would go on to have an illustrious career as the “Polynesians”, adding to their already lengthy and successful individual Hawaiian music careers in L.A.
For their numerous recordings, The Polynesians would be joined by the likes of Freddie and Ernie Tavares, Sam Koki, Lani Sang, and Ben Chapman.
Today, we’ll listen to rare out-of-print recordings from Territorial Airwaves archives.
