Cover KPOI Action 20 August 22, 1967 Welcome to the Hawaii Radio & Television Guide Archive site. This is the archive to the main site of the Hawaii Radio & Television Guide. The materials contained on this site consist mainly of back issues of the Hawaii Radio & Television Guide Newz Over the Air stories as well as personal recollections from people in the business and a short section on past radio charts.

If you like looking at old Hawaii music charts, this is the place to be. Charts here include the 1972 KPOI Top 300 Marathon of Hits, a June 17, 1972 edition of the KPOI Action 20 and the KKUA Top 69 Hits of 1972 list. Thanks to contributor Randy Itamoto, a new set of KPOI Action 20 charts is now in the process of being uploaded to the archive. The first 2 up is from July 1968 and March 1970. Check them out.

A series of KKUA Official Hawaii Top 20 Charts from 1971 and later, 1972 will be posted online. The first KKUA Top 20 charts from January, February and March are now online. See if you remember those songs that made it to the charts back then. If the names Three Dog Night, The Osmonds, Jackson Five, Temptations and The Carpenters don't ring a bell, then for sure you were not around in 1971.

There are more charts, including the KPOI Top 300 Marathon of Hits from 1973, and others from KKUA, KPOI, KCCN and KIKI. Access them from our menu choices below.

Former KIKI DJ Tony "The Tiger" Taylor emailed me with some of his memories. He lives in Taiwan but still yearns for the islands. Be sure to visit the Wili Moku's tribute page which our message board users contributed to by sharing their memories of this popular Hawaii DJ.

If you have old Hawaii radio station charts, surveys, Hawaii radio station dialists or personal memories about working or even listening to Hawaii radio stations, please contact us. The same for TV, if you were here in the early days of Hawaii TV and have a story to tell, send it to us. It would be great to include all of this material here. The email address is posted at the bottom of this page.

This edition of the archive is being hosted at our revamped main site Hawaii Radio & Television Guide domain. The last update to our static pages occurred on November 17, 2007. Those page are now archived here. Our original archive at the Hawaii H4 site is still online and contains the same content of this site up to November 2001.

These were big hits on Hawaii radio in the early 1970s
