January 6, 2007
As we recover from a dizzying New Year's Eve, we bring you a brand new show from Honolulu, Hawaii. While we were there in November, we recorded two shows, so you get even more of slack-key guitar virtuosos Danny Carvalho and Owana Salazar, another dose of the seldom-seen Na Pali, and of course, traditional Hawaiian songstresses Puamana. Plus new adventures of Guy Noir and the News from Lake Wobegon.
