Mana’o Radio is excited to join forces with Maui radio personality and community journalist, Trish da Dish, as we continue our mission of supporting live music on Maui and the musicians who make it thrive.

Join us every other week for our new Facebook LIVE show called Mana’o@Home!

Trish presents an hour-long talk story, interview, and live music experience featuring a respected Maui artist/band on the Mana’o Radio Facebook page LIVE stream.

We are grateful to the brand new Backlit Buddha Studios in Kahului for allowing us to present this and all future episodes of MANA’O@HOME in their beautiful new rehearsal studio!

There is a virtual tip jar for artists to allow Mana’o Radio friends and fans the opportunity to support their favorite artists while enjoying live music performed by some of Maui’s finest musicians in the comfort of their own home. Front row for all!

Gail is Maui’s answer to Ani Difranco, Sheryl Crow and Melissa Etheridge, and we appreciate her so much. Gail is the sister and friend we all want in this world. We’ll talk music, travel, health, life on Maui, and everything in between that’s painted her intriguing path. Visit and follow on
