My Tunes

Just in case you’re wondering, I listen to 101.1 FM KORL Hawaii’s oldies station. Dad only played oldies growing up and since then I haven’t stopped. It’s a wonderful station and golden oldie fans will notice that locals have a different taste when it comes to oldies music. Many local favorites were not big hits on the mainland, most likely due to us being in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
