In this, the seventh week of “Emme’s Classic Island Moments”, join Emme Tomimbang and co-host Jimmy Borges for a truly nostalgic trip back to old Waikiki. In this encore presentation from 1999, Emme and Jimmy look back at Waikiki during the ‘60s when its nightclubs, nightspots and restaurants were alive with island talent.
Paying tribute to legendary performers – the Society of Seven and Don Ho, Emme and Jimmy re-visit careers that spanned over three decades and talk to performers who were the cornerstones of island entertainment. Don Ho’s daughter Hoku, who has her own musical career today, is now carrying on her father’s legacy.
Take a stroll down memory lane with other former stars of Waikiki, some of whom are no longer with us. Enjoy the most cherished and humorous memories of Loyal Garner, Nephi, Hannemann, Dick Jenson, Carole Kai, Sam Kapu, Iva Kinimaka, Melveen Leed, Kimo McVay, Alan Naluai, Marlene Sai, Eddie Sherman, and Emma Veary on “Waikiki, Then and Now”.
Emme and Borges, himself a veteran island jazz musician and vocalist, also pay tribute to prolific singer and songwriter Kui Lee, who wrote the famous island classic “I’ll Remember You” sung by the incomparable Don Ho.
Reminisce with Emme and friends through laughter, song, thought provoking reflections and perhaps some tears, on Emme’s Classic Island Moments: “Waikiki Then and Now”.
