Immerse yourself in Hawaii’s unique musical culture by turning that radio dial to one of our fabulous Hawaii radio stations.

Extra Tip: The big thing in Hawaii is traffic – the morning and afternoon rush hour. Be sure to tune in so you can plan a traffic-free day. You can also search for #hitraffic for current tweets about what’s happening in traffic.
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.
