I received a bit of good news via email this morning. Seems that Fluid Floyd from Honolulu's own keeper of the Exotica torch, DON TIKI is programming an Exotica Radio program for a Hawaiian Airlines in flight music channel called "the Exotica Sky Lounge Show" and has added the song "Crossing Kilauea" from the Tikiyaki Orchestra "StereoExotique" CD.

The show will be airing on ALL flights in February and March. Needless to say I'm really excited about this, as people going to their vacation in paradise will be able to hear the Tikiyaki Orchestra on their way to and from paradise.

Guess I need to book a flight to Hawaii now

That is VERY cool.

I'll never forget my first trip to the Islands to see the Don Tiki show in Honolulu. On my Hawaiian Airlines flight to the Islands the stewards and stewardess's were dressed in Polynesian garb while Don Tiki played over the speakers. They even served Trader Vic's Mai Tai's!!!

Congrats for getting on the playlist and a BIG thanks to Fluid Floyd for putting together an Exotica radio show!!!!!!

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

Okonkuluku!

Congratuamtuations to the TY Orch! Also to Professor Humming Flower's who's original title track from Rendezvous in Okonkuluku is also going to be heard in the in-flight radio selections So far, we haven't been able to get the airline to pick up the Okonkulukukooler drink as a bevvy but we hope to at some point.

LOL Pablus...this one completely fell in my lap. Fluid Floyd hooked me up, and yea, Waitiki is on there,as well as the classic stuff. I saw the playlist, and The Tikiyaki Orchestra track is followed by one of my favorite Martin Denny tracks "The Enchanted Sea". Now THAT'S a nice segue

Maybe, with Waikiki trying to revitalize it's Hawaiian roots, we may see a resurgence in Exotica Music, even if it's for the sake of nostalgia. Too bad they tore down all the cool Tiki landmarks, tho a few still remain. Maybe we can all get gigs at the Hilton Hawaiian village someday

<<Maybe we can all get gigs at the Hilton Hawaiian village someday >>

Now there's a dream to hang my makau on.

There's not a day that goes by that I don't envision myself at the Mauna Kea resort in that big downstairs area playing a tenor koa ukulele to a scattered few while the surf washes ashore just a few yards behi....

...gotta go pack.

Yeah, except you don't have to die first. I'd much prefer being on Hawaiian for the time being! Jim, how do you know Lloyd?
