” We found you in our rental car at 5 am last Thursday morning heading up to catch sunrise on Haleakala. It really got us going, song after song blowing us away—Red Molly, Leadbelly, Afro-beat, Mingus, Chuck Brown—more women than usual too—Norah Jones? Many we could only guess at. Within 24 hours of being home, we’d both looked you up online. And I promise—I’ve never fallen in love with a radio station before.
Best wishes to you—best music we’ve ever heard over genre after genre”-Louisa Davis, an island visitor from Reston, Virginia

On Sunday, July 6th, we hope you’ll join us to celebrate in our traditional manner with the mighty Mana’o Radio Orchestra, with Steve Grimes, Dorothy Betz, Les Adam, Don Lopez, Kerry Sofaly, and some very special guests. We’ll be kickin’ butt and takin’ names, and generally having a great time. Bring your dancing shoes! Also, Steve Grimes will be playing a set of his own, and he has new material that he’s very excited about sharing with his many fans. And we’ll be welcoming some old friends with a new name: Yum Yum Beast, featuring Justin Morris and Matt DelOlmo, of the Brown Chicken Brown Cow String Band. This new duo has been making waves all over the island! Justin and Matt have promised to join the Mana’o Radio Orchestra for a good old-fashioned jam, too. This is going to be fun!
There will also be FREE BIRTHDAY CAKE to help celebrate our eleventh year of great acoustic music!
