Hey! In another ENCORE performance, I will be on KXLU 88.9 FM again tonite, talking about the CD, promoting the above event, and chatting with DJ Cyrano on the Molotov Cocktail hour, 10 - 12:00 p.m.

This is one of the longest standing Lounge radio shows out there. Co-host Senor Amor is on tour with Luch VaVoom. Cyrano and I will discuss the fate of the Kelbo's logo Tiki, "Wiki the Tiki"!

How about the story about Carlin Dinkler's Luau restaurant ??

Is 1962 the year that Tiki peaked ??

Luau --> Tiki.

The Dinkler story is for Swanky to tell, he did the most research on it. There is no "peak year" for Tiki but it is AROUND '62 that it peaked: 61-64, I would say. I'll get into that.

Another interesting session. Bigbro didn't get a chance to chit chat as much as on Stella's show, but he did introduce some different tracks. There was one Paul Page song (not on his CD) where he (Paul) sings through a list of every Hawaiian singer from the 50's (even earlier?) through the 60's. That one was really cool. Jack Lord was even mentioned. That one puzzles me.

Paul Page was always below the radar for me but now I'm really interested in learning more, especially with his Westside (Marina Del Rey) connection.

Also there was a funny story about the 8-foot Kelbo's Tiki being discovered rotting away and covered with vines in someone's backyard. When they tried to "free" him, they had to retreat since a swarm of bees had made a home inside him. Since then, anyone who's come into contact with the Tiki has suffered a mysterious fate (OK, I made that part up ).

Also lot's of publicity for the Tonga Hut event so maybe we'll see an indy hipster/geek for every Tikiphile there.

Speaking of Kelbo's.... Did you know the Tapa swag lamp hanging in the big back booth at the Tonga Hut is out of Kelbo's? Bet you didn't it was a gift to Jeremy (owner, my boss) a few years ago from a family member I believe. Have a look some time when your visiting. There I also now a large scraping of Bamboo hanging the Tonga Hut from the Stockton Islander before it was demolished the bamboo is tagged and numbered as to what section of the Islander it came from. Gifted to the Hut by Eric October the Stockton Islander was Eric's hometown Tiki establishment. See if you can spot it when you come out for Sven's Sound of Tiki signing party.
As for the Tiki's in the Tonga Hut? There is still many a story as to where they came from back in 1958....

Yes, thanks Tom for the lay out....I couldn't do that.

It is also planned now to have my CD permanently installed in the Tonga Hut juke box. That's so cool, my compilation in a Tiki bar juke box, that's as cool as having a bar's restrooms wall-papered with my book pages. I love being represented by all these old-fashioned 20th Century forms of media:

First BOOKS, now RADIO, and then a JUKE BOX. Oh, and a CD, which is old fashioned nowadays too, if I look at my son's way of getting his music

Hey Kelly, I think that lamp was given to Jeremy by Jeffrey Valance, the artist/author who's article on Tonga Hut is framed and hanging in the back hallway.

Glad to hear the Sound of Tiki will be added to the TH jukebox!

And awesome flier, Tonga Tom!

See everybody on Sunday!
