1st Pa'ina with Poki: Willie K

The premier of the new Hawaiian Music Series was awesome. The KPOA studios were flooded with phone inquiries..........It's raining, is it going to happen? Of course it is was our reply and it did happen. Let me explain that KPOA now lives in Kahului in Central Maui where it rains more.  It drizzled a little bit in Lahaina in the morning, but that was a Hawaiian blessing. Our west side Ohana knew better and showed up in droves.
WHO ELSE COULD DO THE PREMIERE EDITION, BUT.... our own Willie "Willie K" Kahaiali'i . He was the perfect Hawaiian Man, taking pictures with the keiki, being his excellent self, and don't get me started on his musical prowess. Mahalo nui loa....Willie K and ohana.
This exciting new Lahaina event is free and will be held on the second Thursday of the month from 11:00am-12:30pm on the Baldwin Home Museum lawn. Presented by Lahaina Restoration Foundation, the 10 month program will be hosted by Allen Pokipala "Braddah Poki" of Pacific Radio Group.
