Smile Hawaii Radio Dial 2019 and Beyond

Since things are so ultra slow here, decided to just add one new thread to cover all things current with Hawaii radio both on Oahu and neighbor islands, traditional through the airwaves and internet streaming... whatever.

To start things off...

RECENT CHANGES ON THE HONOLULU RADIO DIAL (Dec. 2018)

Three Country Music Stations in Honolulu! Say what? Can't believe it myself, but there are now three and actually four radio stations here on Oahu that are playing a country music format.

KGU AM 760 / 95.1FM just flipped to country last week, dumping the long running Bloomberg business radio format.

KHCM 97.5 FM still maintains their country music format. They have been playing country for at least 10 years now. Both KGU and KHCM are owned by Salem Media.

KORL 107.5 FM retains its country music format that the station adopted last year. KORL is a multiplexed station running on several frequencies airing different formats such as oldies, 80s rock & pop, classic rock and country. It's owned by HHawaii Media.

In late October KPHI 96.7 FM / 1130 AM flipped from Filipino music to a new format "Shaka 96.7" playing contemporary Hawaiian music from the 70s to 90s. They're also an HHawaii Media station.

Other news... long time talk radio station KWAI at 1080 AM has been off the air for sometime now and is now labeled as "silent". Probably hardly anyone listened to them.

So is anyone here still listening to the radio in the old traditional way or have you just like dumped radio and stream everything on your smartphone and other connected devices (internet)?
