KTUH Alumni Reunion Event A Success!

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.

Wild Brothers Play Jazz

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.
