I’m originally from Hau’ula, Hawaii, but I’ve been living in Las Vegas, Nevada for the past 36 years. I guess you could say I’m a Las Vegas Native. I moved here in 1980 because my parents were stationed at Nellis Airforce Base. Yeaup. I’m a military brat and I’ve travelled around the world. I attended thirteen different schools before I graduated Wagner High School in the Philippines. Fortunately, no matter where I travelled to, I was always surrounded by people that were from Hawaii so I never lost the culture.
Music and laughter are a big part of my life and my two greatest values. Being Hawaiian, these values were instilled me at a young age which allowed me to share the spirit of aloha to the rest of this world.
Getting into radio, I given the opportunity in 1998 to be part of a Hawaiian radio show on KLAV Las Vegas, a brokerage radio company where you paid for airtime and could broadcast anything you wanted from talk to multicultural music. The biggest challenged I faced there was being able to get sponsors to pay for programming, but my determination got me through it.
In 1999, I got the opportunity to bring my show to the FM dial. That’s where the Little Grass Shack show was reborn in 1999 on KUNV 91.5 PM Las Vegas. And that’s where was are today. As of this past August, it’s now been 18 years of building and the results have been more than worth it. We’re the longest running Hawaiian radio show in the 49 states. LGS is now a popular show with our community, sharing the spirit of Aloha every Saturday afternoon from 12pm-3pm. I want to keep sharing and building a stronger foundation of Aloha here in the mainland USA. Keep us on your FM dial, 91.5 FM KUNV Las Vegas, for your 3-hour trip to paradise.
