In my neck of the woods it seems like every Hawaiian record you find is a Hawaii Calls LP - it must have been real popular here in Maryland! I've actually gotten to the point where I don't pick them up anymore - how many different versions of "Pearly Shells" and "Hawaiian Wedding Song" does one man need?

You can't be serious. I must have dozens and dozens.

Precisely...I draw the line at about 20!

I love the Hawaii Calls LPs, and no, they aren't broadcasting anymore. Everyone who was "anyone" performed with them in terms of Hawaiian music and some wonderful stars were launched there..if you don't have any of Haunani Kahalewai's LPs, you need to acquire some! I'm at work, so I can't give an exact count, but something like 20 Hawaii Calls LPs were issued.
As far as the instrumental series, I think this is the order:
They are all called "Favorite Instrumentals of The Islands, vol. whatever"
Vol. 1 - no subtitle
vol. 2 - Hawaiian Shores
vol. 3 - Hawaiian Strings
vol. 4 - Exotic Instrumentals (the tiki one)
vol. 5 - Romantic Instrumentals of The islands (with organ)
vol. 6 - Soft Hawaiian Guitars (I think...) (this one was more contemporary sounding).
they are all beautiful. Of course, I hope everyone has they're two ventures into exoticism.."Exotic Instrumentals" and "Fire Goddess."
Cheers

Here is a list of all (I think) of the Hawaii Calls LPs that were released. This list does NOT include the solo albums by artists like Alfred Apaka and Haunani though.

There is a Hawaiian Internet radio station that re-broadcasts episodes every Saturday at 4PM PST. I'm listening to it right now as I type this.
http://www.alohajoe.com/hicalls.htm
The other website mentioned, hularecords.com , only re-broadcasts episodes once a month. But the advantage to them is that you can listen whenever you like. Finally, I found this link to a broadcast from December 29, 1949:
http://www.angelfire.com/ky2/cumberlandgapbc/491229HawaiiCalls.mp3
You'll notice that this one is an mp3, meaning you can actually download it and burn it to CD if you desire.
There is also another Hawaii Calls record not previously mentioned called something like "Webley Edwards presents Hawaii: Our Fiftieth State" or something like that. It features a gate-fold cover and a ten page booklet. It also features a track by Arthur Lyman, a truncated version of the Hawaii Calls radio show, and lots of dialog and SFX clips which I used to incorporate into my sets when I was a deejay. Well worth seeking out.

For those with broadband --

http://www.yoyoisland.com/tiki-tube.htm

Scroll down to find an embedded YouTube vid of Martin Denny on "Hawaii Calls".

(Apologies for not including a "Viewing Guide" on Tiki-Tube yet -- if you have display / interactivity problems, try our FAQ link at the bottom of the page, and I'll get onto correcting the oversite here next week.)

A great show; someday they'll all be available to downstream, I'm sure...

Cheers and Best Aloha,
SOK

Trader Rick,
Yes, the LP is kinda like an audio visit to Hawaii, the first track are the sounds of the ship arriving and people yelling "aloha". The record is quite nice actually. The Arthur Lyman track is "Sim Sim" which is featured on one of his records.
