From NPR.org:
**
All Things Considered, April 3, 2008 One of the most popular musicals of all time Rodgers and Hammerstein's South Pacific gets its very first Broadway revival tonight. It's been close to 60 years since the show opened, but the cast and creative team of the new production say they find South Pacific as resonant as ever.

By the way, I dig Koop's show weekly and recommend it highly (see post above).

Music We Missed: Waitiki 7
LISTEN
NPR Music, December 24, 2010 - President Obama is spending Christmas in Hawaii, so it's possible to imagine the First Family or at least some of their Hawaiian neighbors listening to music that sounds like Waitiki 7. The septet's album New Sounds of Exotica recalls a style of music that seemed to go out of fashion with the tiki bar.

Thrilled to see one of my favorite modern exotica bands featured like this. Way to go guys!

Think Tiki's Tacky? Grab A Cocktail And Think Again
LISTEN
NPR, April 22, 2012 - If you thought the heyday of Polynesian restaurants had passed, then clearly you haven't been to the Mai Kai in Fort Lauderdale. For the annual Hukilau, the Mai Kai Restaurant is home.

I just came here to post that same link! My daughter heard the segment yesterday and sent me the link. She's not taken much interest in tiki, but some of the artists featured have her intrigued.
