HI on Air with the Boss Lady on Tuesday 6-9PM

Mission Statement


Through my experience subbing every show available in the past five weeks including the temporary sub for 6-9am on Tuesdays, I’ve found that the true niche is not necessarily the music genre strictly, but the ceaselessness and persistence required to say things ten times more excited than standard on air at 3am. This persistence is something that needs to be exercised with the same exuberance, the same commitment to the listener regardless if it is 3:00 am, or 8:00am during Rush hour, and that’s what I can offer to KTUH, and my audience. The show, ‘Hi on Air’ has finally found a niche after being present two to three times a week for the past five weeks amongst Honolulu’s early morning commuters. The show is fitting into a more rounded and worldly genre that spans from indie rock to acid jazz punctuated by the occasional electronic beat and downtempo dance aspects; complimenting the more frenetic tempo pieces I’ve expanded into more down tempo arrangements reflecting almost a “Post Soul/ R&B” sensibility; a genre that I have fondly nicknamed dub-jazz and soul (but not quite dubstep). It has a unique sound that is borderline club and trance but not sacrificing jazz and soul elements in most scores. Hi on Air will continue to evolve its musical flavor as my knowledge and familiarity grow like it has over the past five months as a committed trainee. A privilege that the early morning slots provide that a 3-6am slot did not provide was a plethora of callers who only had encouraging things to say of the music and the ridiculous amounts of energy I had in the morning to provide a set mood that facilitates and stimulates the community (everyone in traffic). I have been met time and time again with great listener response and enthusiasm, a love for the music, for the energy and the enthusiasm, and it only feed into what I can provide as a DJ on my own show. I am inspired and passionate about the music I play and the tone that is set, I will represent KTUH only in an honorable as well as a revolutionary light.
