Your Source for the History of Hawaiian Music !
This website is the online extension to the Honolulu radio program Territorial Airwaves. Hosted by Harry B. Soria and now in its 36th year, Territorial Airwaves is the longest continuously running radio show in the Hawaiian Islands. In addition to recordings of Territorial Airwaves programs, the site contains extensive audio excerpts, photos and displays devoted to the preservation and perpetuation of traditional Hawaiian music, embracing the steel guitar, ukulele, hula, falsetto and harmony, chant and mele, traditional and hapa haole, with new exhibits added regularly. We also offer historical commentary, liner notes, and curatorial expertise.
