In 1935, Hawaii Calls, created by Webley Edwards, a mainland transplant to the islands, went on the air. As the show's musical director, Vickie Ii Rodrigues assembled a talented roster of singers and musicians and, recalls Hawai‘i's beloved journalist, Bob Krauss, "Edwards acted as a story-teller-of-the-songs on the air. He paid the $22.50 transmission charge to San Francisco out of his own pocket. The radio audience begged for more. For the next 30 years, Hawaii Calls set a standard around the world for traditional Hawaiian music." 

From the welcoming sounds of the conch shell, to the final strains of "Aloha ‘Oe" and the waves washing up on the shores of Waikiki, our recreation of an actual Hawaii Calls broadcast will take you back to a kinder, gentler time in our Hawai‘i...

The popular tunes of the day are performed for you by the stars of the long-running show, backed by the world famous Hawaii Calls orchestra and chorus.
