    Re: Oldies competitor just arrived in Honolulu

    If I recall correctly, KONI-FM on Maui started off with an AC format when Ivan Dixon put it on the air around 1993. I believe it switched to oldies when George Hochman purchased it in 2002.

    Re: Filipino programming on 650 AM

    They should be able to sell plenty of commercials and/or programs to advertisers trying to reach an underserved audience. I think they'll do just fine.

    No one enjoys the standards more than I do. But, when it comes to broadcast radio, that train has left the station. And I have some programming experience, so I feel I can speak about this...

    Re: Tsunami Warning Saturday Oct. 27, 2012
