A Note from Michael Maynard, KTUH DJ from 1970 to 1976.
Have a Great Reunion, fellow alums. “Golden Years” at KTUH for us were 1970 to 1976. I still listen to KTUH online. If one had told us that KTUH would be heard all over da Planet in ’74, we would have thought they were pupule. Wow..I must send Regrets-cannot be there 21 June, but hope to visit another time. Best Regards to all KTUH alumni, past & present.
Time spent at KTUH for me was some of Da Best times of my life. Funny, it doesn’t seem like 44 years since we started there. If you remember us from back in the day & would like to, send us one email with your news, remembrances, updates, etc. Would really like to hear from you. I’ll send more updates later. Have a great celebration & take plenty photos.

Dave and Ken Wild, each a KTUH Tuesday night jazz show host in the early 1970s, performed two sets at Vitello’s in Studio City, CA on August 4, 2011 and again in late 2012. Brothers Dave (on piano) and Ken (on bass) were joined by Eric Marienthal on saxophones and Ray Brinker on drums in 2011. Here is a link to a YouTube video from that night. Dave promises that they both will attend the next KTUH staff reunion.

The first KTUH staff alumni reunion was held the afternoon of Saturday, July 16th, 2011 on the Hemenway Hall makai lanai at the UH Manoa campus. Seventy alumni, guests and current KTUH staff attended and enjoyed an afternoon of food, drinks, music, KTUH studio tours, plus a showing of the KTUH 40th Documentary and Gallery Show. There was plenty of time to talk story. The KTUH 40 Gallery Show was printed on banners for display at the Reunion. There was also a music set contest for attendees: alumni put together 20 to 30 minute music sets from the era that they were at KTUH and the selected sets were played during the Reunion event. Photos of the reunion event may be seen on the KTUH Alumni flickr site and on Honolulu Pulse.
