Mele and Rich were guests on AM 900 KNUI morning radio show called "Maui Breakfast Club" on Friday, December 21, 2012. Host Tom Blackburn-Rodriquez (on left) heard the Serenaders perform at the J. Walter Cameron Center on December 7, and was so impressed that he invited us onto the show co-hosted by Kellie Pali-Cruz (on right). Songs included: Kupa Landing (in Hawaiian language), Beyond the Reef (from boat days era), Lahainaluna (Maui song), Girl From Ipanema (jazz), Flying (mellow song to Bossa Nova beat), and ended with the Hawaiian Christmas song Mele Kalikimaka.
After the show, Ray the radio technician gave Mele a copy of the program on CD.
You can download the full uncut version of the 55:46 radio show and then listen to it on your computer audio player, ipod, or other digital audio listening device. Enjoy!
While on the air, some of Mele's ukulele students and the executive director of the Bailey House Museum called in with their comments. You can hear their endorsements here.
You can listen to a short clip, or purchase a downloadable MP3 file of the entire single songs for 99 cents each as recorded by The Hawaiian Serenaders, the professional husband-wife duo of Richard Tom on bass and Mele Fong on ukulele.
