Aloha,

Here's that Tiki Magazine review... It's a good issue. I enjoyed reading it.

Aloha,



Just a reminder, Bess Press has got a deal going on pre-Hukilau... I'm only going to carry a limited amount of books to Fort Lauderdale. My Hukilau talk, "A Celebration of the Tiki Age in Hawaii" is going to be swell. I've been collecting old tourist slides for many years now, but never got around to digitalizing them. I have now and honestly should have made more of a priority to get them done. There is some quite amazing stuff there that I could have and should have used in Waikiki Tiki. I'll post a few examples in the next few days. The slides range from the 50's to the early 70's and range the entire island chain. Anyhow, the seminar ought to be fun and I encourage you to consider spending an hour talking Waikiki Tiki at the Hukilau..

Aloha,

Here's another slide that I digitized for my Hukilau presentation... These are going to look great on the big screen.

Aloha!

Could this be the interior HULA HUT in Waikiki on Beachwalk next to the Hawaiiana Hotel? I am working my usual sources to confirm this idea. Until I find some one that can confirm or deny, I am going to say an unconfirmed YES. This is quite exciting since I have been looking for an interior shot of this palace for a long time. I also have a shot of the bar that I will post if I get a confirmation.



Due to circumstances beyond my control, My multi-media presentation and talk, "A Celebration of the Tiki Age in Hawaii," set for this year's Hukilau, is CANCELLED.

After a slide show of 1950's through the 1970's tourist slides from across the island chain and some current video of the islands, the big finale I was planning is AN actual 1956 audio recording of Donn "The Beachcomber" Beach introducing his "Feast of the Islands Luau" at Don the Beachcombers restaurant in Waikiki.

This rare audio was obtained (at great expense and trouble) from the archives of a defunct local radio station and is so clean you would swear you were there in person...

I am currently looking to move this seminar to another venue and time. Mahalo for your kokua, and thank you for your interest.

In the meantime, don't forget that my publisher, Bess Press had made a very nice limited time offer to you -- 25% off the book's price and FREE shipping. I urge you to pick up a copy of my well reviewed book, "Waikiki Tiki: Art, History and Photographs." I'm sure you will enjoy it.
