Re: Self-driving vehicles

Re: Oldies competitor just arrived in Honolulu

If I recall correctly, KONI-FM on Maui started off with an AC format when Ivan Dixon put it on the air around 1993. I believe it switched to oldies when George Hochman purchased it in 2002.

Re: When KIPO was a small station

Very interesting, Mel. This was before the huge consolidation tsunami hit the islands. I don't think Capstar purchased KSSK until 1997. After that, the big guys started gobbling up everyone in...

Re: Filipino programming on 650 AM

They should be able to sell plenty of commercials and/or programs to advertisers trying to reach an underserved audience. I think they'll do just fine.

Re: Registering my Car with the State

This is how I understand out of state plates work in Hawaii. This might be old information, but it's how it was not long ago when a friend shipped over a vehicle.

Re: Hawaii Five-0 on CBS: Season 3

Ah, the old TV network Friday Night move. A surefire way to kill off a show.

Re: KSSK - IMO there's room for improvement

No one enjoys the standards more than I do. But, when it comes to broadcast radio, that train has left the station. And I have some programming experience, so I feel I can speak about this...

Re: GMO Labeling in Hawai'i

I believe the current bill before the Hawaii legislature closely mirrors California law on the issue.

Re: Tsunami Warning Saturday Oct. 27, 2012

That makes a lot of sense. A major earthquake on the Big Island could generate a large tsunami that would reach Maui and Oahu in a matter of minutes, not hours.

Smart kid!

Re: Mermaids

You're so right!
