    Question How long will Deliliah last on KUMU Lite 94.7?

    Because KUMU Lite 94.7 is now owned by Visionary Related Media, how long will Delilah last on that station? Maui's I-FM (KAOI FM 95.1/96.7) doesn't run Delilah. Another thing about I-FM is that their music mix includes 60s and 70s oldies, whereas Lite 94.7 only plays music of the 80s, 90s, and now, pretty much like Krater 96. Will Lite 94.7 keep Delilah or will it drop Delilah and thus be like Maui's I-FM?

    I really don't know the insides of the local radio scene but unless Delilah has crappy ratings at KUMU, they would have dropped the show a long time ago. The question would then be what would take it's place?

    Question Re: How long will Deliliah last on KUMU Lite 94.7?

    You know, I'm embarassed to say it was a long time before I figured out that Delilah was a syndicated show beamed in from the Mainland. Up until then, I was actually kind of proud of our little state, generating such quality melodrama. "I want to dedicate this song to my girlfriend, and say I'm sorry I slept with her sister, and then wrecked her car, and then said her sister did it, and that was wrong, I know now, and I love you, Brandeen!"

    It reminded me of the ridiculous late-night dedications they'd air on KRTR... do they still do that?

    I don't know Visionary as a media company... why wouldn't they keep Delilah? I mean, what else is out there, syndication wise? Besides Casey Kasem, I mean? KUMU seems to me distinct enough from KDDB and KQMQ...

    You are not alone in thinking that Delilah was initially a local program. I am not much of a radio listener but when I do listen it's normally KUMU-FM. Sometimes it's at night when Delilah is on and of course with the station id being You are listening to Delilah on KUMU. Makes you think it's a local DJ. After a while you notice things like why is the call in line has an area code (I think it was a 888 number), making references to home life on a farm and lack of references about Oahu.

    I have nothing against syndicated radio shows, it's just that this one sort of passes pretty much like a local show.

    Nothing much to watch on Monday night and for some strange reason Cartoon Network took off Aqua Teen Hunger Force from the Monday to Thursday schedule so I tunned in to KUMU.

    There was a station break where Deliliah says Mahalo for listening to Deliliah on KUMU Lite 94.7. So one gets the feeling it's a local show (and forgetting about taped messages). As the show goes on they are talking about one of the kids finds a cat and then said cat turns out to be a racoon who then manages to hide in the attic.

    Let's face it who in Hawaii has an attic in their house?

    Delilah Changing Radio Syndicators

    From the Hawaii Radio & Television Guide

    Nationally broadcast evening show hostess Delilah will be switching syndicators come the end of June. Her contract with Jones Radio Network expires in June. She will be moving her program to the Premiere Radio Network where she will join a growing stable of radio stars including Casey Kasem (American Top 20) and George Noory (Coast to Coast AM). No word on whether or not the change will effect the local broadcast of Delilah which currently airs in Honolulu on KUMU FM.

    -------------------------------

    Most of Premiere's programs air on Clear Channel stations here in Honolulu. Could Delilah move to Clear Channel?

    Premiere Radio
    News Radio & Records*
    * The Radio & Records links will probably only show Delilah's story as the lead for only 1 day (today)
    I'm still here. Are you?

    If Delilah does get yanked from KUMU Lite 94.7, maybe Jessica Rich can do a live and local "Love Songs" show.

    Decided to turn on the radio for some background noise tonight and sure enough Deliliah is still on KUMU.

    What was interesting just a few minutes I posted this note she was talking to a long time listener who over some unknown period of time to me sent about around 200 email messages to her show.

    For tonight he wanted her to play a song for him to dedicate his love to his wife of 15 years.

    Talk about an old thread coming back to life. Yes, Delilah is still on KUMU. She is not the only syndicated night time radio show in Hawaii. KPOI has Alice Cooper in the nights. KHCM's whole day comes from the mainland. John Tish has a similar lovey dovey music show on KSSK AM. And then most talk & sports radio in Hawaii is syndicated from the mainland, some live, many recorded.
    I'm still here. Are you?

    Who is Delilah? And is there a face to that name?

    Better to listen to her than to John Tesh (everything went downhill since he left Entertainment Tonight).

    The answers you seek might be found here, my son...

    Delilah Rene is a single mom with eight kids, five of whom are adopted. She lives in the country near Manchester, WA (near Seattle). I've never met her, but those who have worked with her tell me she is very nice. A recent newspaper article from her hometown paper is here.

    Maui's I FM 95.1/96.7 (KAOI) now features Delilah. As far as I can remember, I FM started featuring Delilah around late 2005/early 2006. Thus, I FM followed in the footsteps of KUMU FM 94.7.

    She seems like a very nice lady. But that show sucks.

    Like super super super Saccharin... yikes...
    way too sweet for my taste.

    I guess there are people out there that need it though- she does very well.

    Had the radio on today for background sound while I am working on a project, so naturally it's tuned to KUMU-FM and on the Deliliah show where she states that she recently purchased a horse and named it Samson.

    Well Delilah recently left KUMU Lite 94.7, don't know exactly when, but I just noticed it today. Rico takes Delilah's place with his "KUMU Quiet Storm." So far I love it, hearing love songs I haven't heard in a long time, and I don't have to put up with the preachy love talk that Delilah has to offer. Way to go KUMU Lite 94.7!

    I've been listening to the smooth jazz station, KORL-FM 101.1, where there's an on-air personality by the name of Miranda Wilson. From the time I first heard her voice and delivery my first thought was...that's Delilah, incognito! I still think she's Delilah altho' Google proves me wrong! This station does have a local on-air personality (early evening/night, I think...I can listen to it only in my car!) but the majority of it is syndicated using top recording artists in the smooth jazz genre. Miranda has a great radio voice but, like Delilah, can be a bit overly sweet. I coulda sworn they were one and the same!

    Aww, I love Delilah! From the time I found her show (around 16) until now, I put her show on at night if I need a little comfort or if absolutely nothing else is on. It's not really my kind of music, but it reminds me of being at home. And she looks just like I thought she would.

    Delilah is an unapologetic snuggle pusher.
    This is a cute quote, and totally fits both of my dogs!

    Can't think of anything creative this time

    Mahalo for the love on the thread board.

    Delilah is a nice person. But as most have indicated, the show wasn't resonating locally. The Quiet Storm is live and local from 765 Amana Street every Monday thru Friday. That's one advantage. Not that I am a very good jock but at least I am your neighbor, lol. The other point is the music is now more focused on a local person, someone who grew up here exposed to the stations and music that played in Honolulu. We found these things matter. The KUMU Quiet Storm has rocketed to #1 rated night show in people 25-54 in it's first 4 months.

    A sincere thanks for listening and Aloha

    I just now found this thread. Miranda Wilson is an on-air person in San Francisco. The station, KKSF, was my favorite "Quiet Storm" station and I never moved my radio dial from it the whole time I lived there! When they started streaming on the net, I listened on my computer. I was so happy that I could listen here in Honolulu. Another of their personalities is Dave Koz, who is a trip to listen to. A few months ago, the station changed its format from Smooth Jazz to Adult Contemporary. There was such an uproar about the change that the owners now broadcast Miranda, Dave & the rest as a live stream only. So, we still have our station - just not on the radio. What you have been hearing must be from them. Miranda is a great person with a voice like honey - and she knows all the artists that she plays.

    I no longer listen to the live stream - they are slowly changing that format too. Less jazz, more vocals. I now listen to I Heart Radio.com.

    When I was surfing the radio dial in my car today, I thought my ears were deceiving me when I heard Foxy's Get Off emanating from 94.7. I know the song is over 30 years old. But still,...

    Definitely not your father's KUMU.
