North Shore Radio Hawaii
Site Sponsor: North Shore Shirts
We've been playing Hawaiian Music on North Shore Radio Hawaii for more than 3 years. We had a short break in our broadcast, and we couldn't have come back without the help of our partners and site sponsor, North Shore Shirts. We wanted to thank them for sticking with us, and helping to keep the site and music on the air. If you're in the market for an awesome t-shirt or decal make sure to visit their site. The have great selection of cool t-shirts, funny t-shirts, island t-shirts, hilarious T-shirt, party t-shirts and bad t-shirts at great prices. We hope that North Shore Shirts will continue to be our site sponsor for many years to come. Aloha and Mahalo Nui North Shore Shirts.

We're Back Up and Running
Aloha! We are now back and running our radio stream. It should be available to everyone, not just live365 members. We have completed our move to the Island of Hawai'i, and everything seems to be going well. We hope to be adding more music shortly. Keep checking with us!
The last 5 years have been fabulous, but on 3/21 we will be suspending our radio stream. We have provided island style music online for the last five years, but over the last year we haven't been able to update the music as much as we would like. The funds to continue service just aren't available at this time, as we make our move back to the islands. It's possible that we may resume broadcasting in the next few months, but no guarantees at this time. Aloha and Mahalo nui for listening!
New Kau Kau
We've added over an hour of new mele. That means we have over 22 hours worth of music rotating on the radio station now. We've got new songs from Pohaku, Katchafire, Maoli, Ho'okoa, Teresa Bright, Rebel Souljahz, and many others. Listen for these great new artists.
New Music: Tyna
We've now added Tyna's latest single Overjoyed to the playlist. Tyna recently dropped us a quick email, and here's what he had to say.
My name is Tyna Keelan, My cousin Leon told me how his band (Katchafire) are doing well in Hawaii and how the Hawaiin people support Maori music so I approached North Shore Radio Hawai'i to introduce my music. I'm known here in Aotearoa as an Mcee but have always wanted to take it back to just singing and playing my guitar. Overjoyed is the first single off my solo album which is due out later this year.
Be sure to listen out for Tyna's music in the rotation.
Mele Kalikimaka! We hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday. To celebrate we've add a hour of new songs to the station. We now have over 21 hours of Hawaiian Music for you to enjoy.
New Music added this week from Teresa Bright, The Brothers Cazimero, Kaumakiwa Kanaka'ole.
We've added two new songs by Testafiyah to the playlist. Listen for the songs: Send In The Players and Why You Ain't Got Time For Me.
Here's a little more information about this great new Hawai'i based reggae band from their website: It has been nearly a decade, since singers/song writers/musicians, Bruce “Poncho” Ho‘opai, Shane “HHB” Kahalehau, and Vernon “Kuma” Kapua‘ala, have performed together on stage. Once forming the crucial core of the hard hitting reggae band (“Sly Dog”), they are now joined by former “Pound 4 Pound” singer, Allin Dudoit, and heavy basist, Makapu Ho‘opi‘i, of the Na Hōkū Hanohano award winning band, “Ekolu”. Although it was their passion for reggae music that introduced the men in the late 90’s, that passion has now been surpassed and is divinely driven—by their deep rooted love for God and their fellow man. Thus the rebirth of these young artists, and the Genesis of Hawaii’s Hottest New Band—Testafiyah. Unprecedented in the entire state, Testafiyah blends a European influenced reggae and replaces the genres’ typical lyrical content—Rastafarianism, political/economic oppression and love—with inspirational words of hope, comfort and light. In a day and age, where global politics weighs tremendously on the very core of every society—the family unit—Testafiyah keeps it “local” and delivers it home, as they draw upon their personal and musical experiences to touch lives—especially those who they may have influenced in the past—with a brand new message that is wholesome and breathes life, worthy of passing down to the next generation and beyond.
Make sure to visit the Testafiyah Myspace page hear more from the band, and find out where they are playing in around the islands.
