In this episode I start it off by playing Alan Akaka’s arrangement of “Song Of The Islands” aka (Nā Lei O Hawai‘i). He talks about the upcoming Hawaiian Steel Guitar Festival in Kauai and the coming up in April in Maui. He also talks about the early history of Hawaiian Lap Steel and some of the key players of the style throughout the years.
