"Hawaiian Steel" with Geri Valdriz

January 25, 2020 • Geronimo "Geri" ValdrizEntertainment

Calling all fans of Hawaiian steel guitar music! I am the musical host for a new radio show dedicated to Kika Kila, the Hawaiian Steel Guitar!

The program is called "Hawaiian Steel" and is broadcast live every Tuesday from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Mana‘o Radio, Wailuku, Maui, Hawai‘i, KMNO, 91.7FM on the radio dial.

DJ Geri Valdriz

You can catch it on the air, or streaming live at www.manaoradio.com. Past programs can also be heard on the website by navigating to SHOWS & HOSTS and selecting Replay Archives which will take you to a site where program archives are stored. Select Tuesday programming and look for my program.

Tune in and listen to the steel guitar masters of the past and the present. Enjoy the sweet, lush, nahenahe sounds of the strings! It brings back memories of backyard jams, lu‘au hulas, and kanikapila with ‘ohana and friends.

Ed. Note: Geronimo "Geri" Valdriz is a retired judge from the Maui Second Circuit Family Court, Hawaii, and a professional steel guitar player. He has traveled all over the world sharing his music with Hawaiian steel guitar fans.
