    Being a longtime top 40 radio listener and fan (60s - 80s), I have to say that I love charts. I have collected them, wrote them down on paper, saved some of them, unfortunately threw many others away over the years, and painstakingly typed some of them again for posting to the web.

    Here are links to KKUA charts I posted at the Hawaii Radio & Television Guide Archive.



    Links to more charts from KKUA as well as KPOI, KMVI, KCCN and KDEO are posted on the site.

    Thanks for the listings. I was wondering who did 99.8 and never realized it was a local band.

    I'll check that link for more 70's Hawaii hits....

    Wow, I can't even remember the last time I heard songs like Dance With Me and Flashlight on the radio.

    Meanwhile, a disco "classic" like Last Dance (Donna Summer) is nowhere to be seen.

    We instead hear on radio Orleans "Dance With Me", rather than Peter Brown's song.
