Our Mission

Thoughtful… Creative… Eclectic… Radio! 

Mana’o Radio is a cultural treasure trove. Our music is totally eclectic. Our volunteers are passionate and impart a great depth of knowledge about the music they play.

Since our first broadcast on March 11, 2002, our mission has been to inform, educate, and entertain the Maui and increasingly global community with broadcasts of multi-cultural music and other programming, such as:

  • Accurate and timely reports on the news of the day, both local and worldwide
  • Locally produced educational vignettes about Hawaiian history and culture
  • Showcasing local musicians, singers, songwriters, authors, and various other artists
  • Exposing listeners to a broad range of music, not often heard on commercial stations

We are an All-Volunteer Organization

“AVO” is a very cool thing. At Mana’o Radio we are all volunteers. No one receives compensation for what we do; this includes our show hosts, engineering, operations management, board members and community partners. We’re all in it for the love of sharing our love of great music with FM listeners on Maui and our growing internet audience worldwide.

You Can Volunteer

Check out our Volunteer page to learn how you too can become a DJ, or help out in the front office, or interact with our fans in the community. There are many fun and musical opportunities for you to become involved!
