” 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
