Happy 20th, KKCR!

WAILUA — Leilani “Sista Lei” Kaleiohi said not only is it KKCR’s 20th anniversary, KKCR is only one of two community radio stations broadcasting in Hawaii, the other being on Maui.

A steady stream of people flowed through the main pavilion at Lydgate Park Saturday afternoon and evening to enjoy the KKCR’s 20th birthday celebration that featured a menu of entertainment including Michael Keale, and Lady ‘Ipo (Ke Akua Mana Church anchored the food booth with an hearty Hawaiian plate offering) who also featured a pair of blind girls performing old-style Hawaiian music with hula.

Other performers included Shilo Pa, Blue Finger, and Gunga La Gunga filling the air with a variety of music and sound. The Purple Striped Honu Theatre captured the keiki and keiki-minded.

Food trucks ringed the area centering around the main pavilion which overflowed with a range of bounce houses and games from Whiz Bang Got Game. A silent auction offered electric guitars, amplifiers, and other goodies to go along with logowear from KKCR.
