RNZI Airs new Radio
Heritage Feature –
Join us from Monday, March 4 2013 to hear an exciting visit to the contemporary Kaua’i radio dial on the Mailbox program from Radio New Zealand International.
You’ll hear KKCR the local community radio station created in direct response to the destruction of Hurricane Iniki some years earlier when local residents wanted a local radio station to stay safe, in touch and connected.
The HHawaii Inc FM station cluster including KJMQ Jamz, KITH Island Radio and KTOH Rooster Country is well represented with audio grabs – KTOH being the current version of the original AM station on the island.
KQNG and KUAI are the two AM stations on the island, which is about 100 miles from Oahu, where the Hawaiian state capitol of Honolulu is located.
KQNG is also known as KONG radio, and Kaua’i has featured in many well known films over the last 50 years or so, including a King Kong ape movie, and several with Elvis Presley.
There are a growing number of stations on the island, which has a small population of under 70,000 people, and an economy centered on tourism, with just one working sugar cane plantation remaining.
It’s an unusual opportunity to cruise along the Kaua’i radio dial without buying an air ticket there, and the range of radio stations serving the small community is fascinating. We hope you’ll join us.
You can listen directly via shortwave radio from RNZI in New Zealand, or audio on demand [for the following month] with full details of current broadcast frequencies [both DRM and analog] and times possible for your area as well as audio downloads at www.rnzi.com.
Join us from Monday, March 4 2013 as we enjoy this special visit to the Hawaiian island of Kaua’i and are entertained by local radio DJ’s and hear some wonderful music.
We have great radio memories about a visit to KQNG and KUAI on Kaua’i and other Hawaiian radio memories at our website www.radioheritage.com available every day 24/7, and all for free.
