The Reviews Are In: "A Must Listen."
My friend and I found 91.7 while we were in Maui last May. After returning to AZ, I have continued to listen to the Hula Honeys with great pleasure. I support my local radio station KXCI here in Tucson. Independent radio is the best. Big love to you all.
Great local non profit radio. Super eclectic and awesome DJs.
Phat Tony is our fave. Excellent / sophisticated musical taste. How about some Firesign Theater snippits, Bonzo Dog Doo Daa Band & maybe Rob & Ray. We’ll keep listening!

You’re knocking it out of the ballpark tonight. We’re totally digging your show tonight in Littleton CO.
DJ D… jeez so loving your show we listen to Mana’o daily from Menlo Park California and I came across your show late this afternoon been on the couch ever since and need to express to you how absolutely right on your show works ! Upbeat I’ve been cleaning house all day and your show has been playing all afternoon. Much appreciated!
Hula Honeys, you made my day by playing ‘S.P.C.’ by Zeca Pagodinho. In Brazil, S.P.C. refers to the debtor in loan documents . Besides being lively and danceable, that classic samba is also poetic and hilarious. Thanks again!

Ah… Nobody Knows You… yes Bessie.. tell it like it is! Haven’t heard that song in so long thank you thank you! Awesome! I was listening to this while I was pumping gas at Costco. So I left my door open, the radio blaring, dancing away. The guy on the opposite pump came dancing around… He hadn’t heard it for a long time either. The woman behind me at her pump asked me what station I was listening to. I told her Manao radio… she never heard of it… Now she has! 91.7 I said told her all about everybody was a volunteer from the community that just was there cause They love music. anyway, a new listener! Way to go Bessie and Mike!
The best station anywhere on the planet, in my not so humble opinion.
I want to thank Dr. B for his Valentine show yesterday (Holoholo Na Mele). I am in central WA, where the covid stay-home-don’t-mingle time has been made even less bearable by a Polar Vortex Surprise that has dropped over a foot of snow where I live. Bitter cold temperatures and impassable roads. Espresso and good chocolate sure help, but it’s a challenge.
My sister, a long-time resident of Wailuku, torments me with photos of green things, her flowers, and descriptions of “cold nights” of 60 degrees.
I caught part of the program yesterday and was immediately warmed and cheered by it. Now I am replaying it over and over on demand. The 60’s music took me back to watching American Bandstand after school, and Johnny Mathis singing “The Twelfth of Never” reminded me of seeing him live in Seattle with a rotating mirror ball above him. To my teenage self, it was like a dream!
So a huge, sincere THANKS to Manao Radio and Dr. B. Better than chocolate this weekend!
Thanks for the great sound! Cheers from chilly Switzerland!
