Thank you to Frankie's Market for the tip on Live 365! I am enjoying Hawaiian music right now, thank you. Til now its been Aloha Joe, KAPA, KINE, and KKNE, which I still like, but this 365 is great. How did I miss this? I guess when I talk about radio dying I mean the over the air AM & FM traditional radio stations. It seemed such a perpetual, cutting edge technology just a few years ago. For now it still has the advantage that you can get it in your car, or at the beach, etc., but its days seem numbered, something I never thought would happen, along with the demise of newspapers, the USSR, and GM.

Comment on radio listening (in general, not Hawai`i-specific), from an article in Radio Magazine:

Quote:
Arbitron released highlights from its Radar 108 National Radio Listening Report, which is scheduled for release on March 21. The report shows radio's increase of about 2.1 million weekly listeners aged 12 and older over the last year. The number of people 12 and older listening to radio each week now reaches an estimated 241.6 million, representing 93.1 percent of all people.

As compared to the March 2010 report, the number of radio listeners increased across all major demographics, with adults aged 18 to 34 showing the biggest gains, demonstrating radio's continued appeal to young listeners. Adults aged 18 to 34 weekly radio listeners increased nearly 508,000 in the past year, reaching 93.7 percent of all people in this demographic group. The number of teens aged 12 to 17 listening to radio also increased, rising 203,000 in the past year.

The report indicates that over the course of a week approximately 92 percent of all teens aged 12 to 17, 94 percent of adults aged 18 to 34 and 95 percent of adults aged 18 to 49 and adults aged 25 to 54 listen to radio.

I would think there is some truth to the above report, especially the part on gaining more listeners in the younger demographics. This seems to be reflected locally on the FM dial with the share for either R&B, hip hop and reggae-island music being taken up by more local stations.

KQMQ switched from CHR to reggae/island and now competes directly with KDNN and KCCN.... Former hip hop station KIKI FM changed call letter and format to "rhythmic adult contemporary" going by the monicker 93.9 Jamz (KHJZ) and competing with KUMU FM after they changed to that format last year. I guess hip hop is still competitive with 104.3 and 102.7 still going for that market, and the pie for adult contemporary music stays the same with KSSK and KRTR maintaining their tried and true formats... good for us older guys who sometimes like to hear non-challenging music.

Of couse rock music has been reduced to niche market status I guess with KUCD carrying the flag for alternative rock and KPOI airing classic rock - great for anyone that still like guitar based rock music...

Somewhere KTUH somehow picks up between all different genres and a few more, but they never show up in ratings as they are non-commercial... HPR is niche in my book with classical, jazz, news and talk on FM. And they are not rated and non-commercial too.

Religious stations still proliferate with several music oriented ones still on FM (KAIM, KHAI).... Country fans have KHCM 97.5 FM... oldies are still around with 107.9 FM.

AM is talk and sports mostly with a sprinkling or some music (KSSK) and "ethic" stations servicing the Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Filipino communities.

The bottom line in Honolulu is that we probably have too many radio stations on the dial, but still somewhat enough variety to keep people listening... and radio unlike other audio media remains free of computers and subscription costs unless you want to listen to your radio online. Certainly there are thousands of other stations/formats to listen to online, but when you want something, free and simple, radio still fills in a spot... for me at least.

Those new days are coming up on their third anniversary at Salem and there is nobody left there to celebrate.

And those phone banks punched on-hold were "blinking madly". A jock who entertained and informed us was a great reason for people to tune in. Now the only thing on the radio fullfilling it's commitment to 'local public service' are the local commercials. We are still holding on to live morning shows (and thank God for a serving of the iconic Uncle Tom once a week) because of the number of potential listeners getting ready for the day and the commute. The number of listeners to music radio are growing less and less because music radio is "just music", and if I am to listen to just music I have, we all have a device that can be programmed to just the music we like. After my last day to leave the building I went to talk radio and now audio books for my entertainment. I want to be entertained. I believe the world wants to be entertained and informed knowing it is happening now. What is Now, that is why Fox News and CNN have such great tune ins at home. "Live" is still a pretty good concept to live and prepare for. Holy Krap, I never could play the violin very well. Yes, as it was questioned earlier in the thread. Maybe there are fewer and fewer comments to the radio thread because there is nothing to talk about, just a lot of really bad violin players.
Thanks for making it to here and now. Aloha and Happy Trails Kids

I remember the first time I had to turn the lights off at KHNR on Richards street. It felt a bit strange to leave the board knowing I won't be back for 8-hours. Last to leave, first to arrive (the next morning). I slept with one ear listening to that station and as soon as I heard dead air, I started counting up to ten seconds. After that time elapsed, I knew the Audio Vault program had crashed and I had to rush over to the station 20-minutes away to restart the computer. That would happen several times until the bugs were worked out.

My last stint in radio was programming the weekend blocks for KHVH and (then) KHBZ. No fun staring at the Prophet screen looking at programming irregularities when the Traffic Dept inserted spots that didn't work with programming. This wasn't radio, heck I may have been setting up a playlist for an iPod for all that mattered.

Radio was when you got butterflies in your tummy seconds before adjusting those headphones, hitting that mic 1 into program and moving that slider up to a comfortable level.

Pretty soon that "On Air" light outside the studio won't even be necessary and the need to quiet the studio monitors won't be needed as we go further into the realm of Voice Tracking.

Radio ain't radio anymore and it's getting worse

totally totally sucks. Been there and have gone thru that revolving door. As we say in the radio biz, "If you haven't been fired in Radio, you haven't been in it long enough".

Okay, I have few questions that maybe one of you can answer. I listen to KAPA, KWXX, KPOA, Hawaiian 105 and a couple other Hawaiian stations, and boy I love them most of the time. But they could be a lot better. I am in a time zone far far away and maybe it is the time I am listening, but I hear the same songs over and over every day. I own so much Hawaiian music that is not played on these stations for some reason. So:

1. Are these stations directed at Locals or Tourists to Hawaii?
2. Do they play different stuff at different times of the day?
3. Do all radio stations in America only play 40 songs and repeat them to death until you get the urge to leap at the radio device and change the station?

Most of the radio stations you mentioned are guided by locals.

2. Do they play different stuff at different times of the day?

No pretty much the same stuff all the time.

3. Do all radio stations in America only play 40 songs and repeat them to death until you get the urge to leap at the radio device and change the station?

If it's Clear Channel, then it's pretty much the same 40-songs played repeatedly to death. On the Big Island there is no CC presence so you are spared that slow death.

I remember a time when you could pull your selection of music based on a color wheel. Red for the top of the hour (so any of the Top 5) followed by Yellow, Green, Blue and more Red mixed throughout the hour. You could play what you wanted based on the color dot on the cart and the color wheel for that time slot.

That was radio when the DJ could set up each hour based on what he or she wanted and what was requested. Nowdays requested music only happens when that request mimicks what is already on the playlist generated one week in advance by the program director on their automated radio station.

That's not radio, that's an iPod hooked up to an FM transmitter. No joy anymore in this industry.

A very sad thread indeed.
My ipod touch, ipad2 and android phone all have apps that play radio of all types from all over the world. Music, talk, niche formats, from any country at any time. At this moment I am listening to Coast To Coast on a Taos New Mexico station. Favorite music radio stations include Village900 in Victoria BC, Radio1190 in Boulder, RadioK in the Twin Cities, TripleJ in Australia, and KCRW in LA. Notice that none are commercial stations. The only commercial stations I listen to are Progressive Talk Stations as I have an aversion to fascism.
Sorry, but heavily formatted conglomerate radio stinks.
FolkAlley is a great feed, not broadcast but fantastic American Music.

That's what gets me about radio. It's trying to be my iPod. Sorry, but that's a loser's game. It can never be as good as my iPod - tailored exactly to MY tastes and changeable to fit MY mood.

Radio really needs to look at what it is and what it does best. It allows you to feel a connection to another person. It can interrupt with breaking news. Yes, it can play the favorites, but it can also introduce something new to you. I think radio's fault is that it's been listening to what people say they want in the telephone polls instead of giving them what they really want.

I didn’t want to start a new thread over this question but I noticed a few of you out there are from Hilo and Walter Pacheco was mentioned in a few posts from years back.

Is Waltah still alive and/or on radio in Hilo? Or even just still alive? I tried to look him up on the net but couldn’t find any information on that classic hysterically funny “I going broke dees racket" character. Any help on this would be appreciated.

This is interesting to read about. When I went back to college in LA from 2003-2005, I snuck in a show on KOXY's student-run radio station. I am pretty sure more people listened to us streaming than over the air. Pretty small operation by any standard. But it was such a thrill to chat into the microphone and play whatever I felt like and take requests and give out info via IM. Maybe that's what we need...more small-timer operations. Community radio.

Talking Re: State of Radio In Hawaii

Perhaps I can shed a little light on what happended to Walter (Waltah) Pacheco, a dominant and often controversial radio personality in the Hilo radio market in the years between 1976 to 2004. I was intrigued by the comments submitted by Shredded Mango, who asked about this interesting radio guy. Walter retired from the County of Hawaii's Park and Recreation Department in either 2004 or 2005 after he was asked to leave KHLO-AM's morning show back in 2003 (I believe that was the year--details are a bit foggy after almost a decade of not working with him). I was ( and still am) the news director for KHLO-AM and KKBG-FM when Walter was asked to leave following a heated on-air discussion concerning a certain police officer. Station management was threatened with a lawsuit if Walter didn't retract comments he made over the air. Since KHLO-AM had a similar event with Walter back in the mid-70s, the general manager decided to avoid another costly trial and opted to relieve Walter of his duties. In 1975, KHLO-AM, under different management, lost a defamation case in court and had to pay a judgment that eventually bankrupted the station and forced the sale of the station to new company. Waltah's checkered career can be traced by going to the archieves of the "Hawaii Tribune-Herald". I was in an adjoining studio when the flare-up occurred--it wasn't pretty. The irony of the entire mess was that Waltah was often right in many of his on-air rants, but he tended to go overboard and beat the topic to death. People who felt offended by his remarks pressured sponsors to drop his show and that had a negative effect on sales--the lifeblood of commercial radio. Shortly after the incident, KHLO-AM shifted full-time to ESPN programming. Waltah's direct competition was Mel "Mynah Bird" Medeiros, who patterned his delivery and on-air personality after the late Honolulu radio legend, Hal "Aku" Lewis. Mel kept his spirited show at KIPA-AM/KHBC-FM until those stations went dark in October 2010 and collapsed into Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. As for Walter Pacheco, I see him every now and then in the local supermarkets...he looks good and seems to be enjoying life as a retireee. He always treated me well. I guess the old style of confrontation radio that was so popular on Hawaii Island for several decades has worn out its welcome. Most of the talk shows running in town are syndicated programs aired on KPUA-AM. Our ESPN station has a live mid-morning show with Sports Director Josh Pacheco from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Josh is heard over KKEA-AM (1420 in Honolulu) from 12 noon to 1 p.m. He occasionally fills in for Bobby Curran. Josh is a competent young announcer who really knows his stuff and always backs up everything he says with data, wire copy, interviews, and research. Unlike Waltah, Josh is extremely careful and measured in what he says. Josh spends a lot of time researching and doing pre-show prep. It was fun working with Waltah, but it was also nerve wracking, especially when I had to work the "cough" switch to intercept some of his more colorful comments. Free speech is a flexible concept, depending on the depth of your legal pockets. I did not enjoy being a "gate keeper". All that said, I bear no ill-feelings for my former colleague. Radio has just changed and much of what we used to call programming has gone by the wayside. Despite the problems of live programming, it had a gritty sense of life and reflected the pulse of our community. Nowadays, broadcast technology is truly fascinating and I have plenty of toys to play with. Yet, I miss some of the old days--local radio seemed a bit warmer and relevant a few years ago. Aloha, Russell

Thanks Russell for the insight on Waltah Pacheco. For some reason I always remember him playing Marie Osmond's "Paper Roses" on KHLO when they used to play music a long time ago.

Did anyone buy the KIPA 1060/ KHBC 92.7 FM stations yet?

Thanks for the note, Mel. I remember "Paper Roses", too. Waltah played that tune a lot. The KIPA/KHBC combo hasn't been sold yet. The station's FM station in Kailua-Kona (I don't recall the call letters) was dismantled in late October 2010. KIPA-AM/KHBC-FM still occupies a studio at the old B J Furniture Building near Borthwick Mortuary (688 Kilauea Avenue). All of the equipment is still in the locked studio, and, from what the bankruptcy attorney tells the "Hawaii Tribune-Herald", all the new owner would have to do is "hook it up." As far as I know, the bankruptcy court is proceeding with the Chapter 7 process (liquidation). It appears as if owner Parrott Broadcasting of Idaho is just about out of the picture. Mel "Mynah Bird" Medeiros has retired. Brad Freeman, who ran just about everything else at the station, has been hired by B-97 and works with my former partner DC Carlson. Time to crawl back to the newsroom...only a few hours to go....Russell

I think it is kind of difficult to succeed in localized radio in the Hilo/Big Island market. The dial seems to be saturated with a lot of duplicated formats already (ie: too much reggae/island music programming)... don't know what any buyers would do with a Hilo only area station(s).

As for Mynah Bird I think his glory days were over a long time ago, probably after he switched to KHBC when it was on the AM. A lot of older folks out in the country missed him after he left KIPA 620 (when that station had signals all over the island). I hope he's enjoying retirement.

You make an excellent point, Mel. Even with the loss of three radio stations, the Hilo market is filled with similar formats competing for the same diminishing dollar. That's why my employeer and our competitiors have a signal in Kailua-Kona and Waimea. One must be island-wide to generate sufficient revenue to keep the transmitters lit. I agree that Mynah Bird hit his stride several years ago, when KIPA-AM had island-wide coverage (with transmitters at Hilo, Naalehu, and at the old Kona Airport). Those days are gone. The last time I saw Mynah Bird he seemed happy that the stress of the daily broadcast routine was over. The rest of us radio types are still hanging on--a disappearing breed, to be sure. Have a good holiday....Russell

Aloha Russ!! Walter Pacheco frequents Macayan Motors every mid morning for coffee and light talk with John Macayan. Every so often I steal some time away from Big Island Honda and drive down to talk story with them. We're all part of the Amaaulu Camp One gang along with Herbert Segawa.

And Shredded Mango, he's still very much alive.

If I had the money I'd love to start up a live-local radio station here in Hilo and do a great morning/afternoon drive with lots of elements to keep listeners entertained during their morning and afternoon commutes.

Nice to hear from you again Russ!

Thanks for the thoughtful and very detailed post on Waltah-- Russell. But from my recollection he claimed to have hated Paper Roses by Marie Osmond and that was the record he was always “breaking” on the air.

He would start winding up then claim he hated Paper Roses and would then say "I going broke dees racket” Then you would hear a snapping sound and he claimed he broke the record. Who knows if he really did--but it was funny to hear him carry on about it. I also remember him calling High School basketball games on the air.

I think I mainly enjoyed him because he did stuff like that and he also would referee City League basketball games which I played in way back then and was light years away from formulaic while on the air.

Also--didn’t the Gordon family own one of the Hilo radio stations when you started there in the business?

I think at one time they owned either KIPA 620 or KHBC when that was on AM 1060.

KIPA-AM 620 was put on the air by Hugh Gordon in the late 1940s. His son Buddy later managed the station until it was sold around 2002.

About a year later, Buddy bought KAHU-AM 1060 from the Bakers. The call letters were changed to KHBC, which were also assigned to TV Channel 22 in Hilo.

Buddy owned the station for about four years, until it was sold to Parrot Broadcasting. They changed the call letters to KIPA in 2009. I don't know if 1060 is still on the air...it hasn't been the last few times I've tried to tune it in from Hana.

Please, any more history on the late KAHU? Who were the Bakers? When did the station go on the air? It seemed so Hawaiian oriented I thought it was licensed kind of like KTNN (the Navajo owned 50 kw. 660 in Window Rock, Az.) to a community council, but evidently not. I liked KAHU because it seemed like a real "mom & pop" operation, it was so local. Anyway, any additional history on the station would be appreciated.

And what about Mynah Bird? He seemed to have such a large and loyal following, it just doesn't make sense that he's not on the air somewhere in Hilo, which he wasn't last year when I visited.
