I remember the old Pacific Coast League teams. Hawaii Islanders, Eugene Emeralds, Portland Beavers, Tucson Toros, Aubuquerque Dukes, Spokane Indians, Tacoma Twins. Anyone remember others? None of the team names are the same today.

Hey Stumpy,
I was living in the Moanalua district when Aloha stadium opened.
Wasn't there talk of not naming it Aloha, or was it after a year or so
after opening, someone wanted to change the name?
.P.D. undercover cars which were really muscle cars w/lights
Sorry for not responding sooner. I was a truck driver back then, and wasn't involved beyond that. I delivered all the elevators that people are still using today. I remember when the Stadium was just a hole in the ground, and a friend's house was demolished to make way for it. I vaguely remember something about the name, was it "FASI Stadium?"

I went to James Campbell High School in the 70's many a time I would cross the street and get a bag of barbecue Nibbits and a Dr. Pepper for lunch at Tanaks. Loved to go to Sloop John B's for lunch as well. There was also a delicious bakery in that shopping center and a jewlery store where I got my ears pierced. I had Mr. Boyd as a teacher and the drama teacher oh yeah Mr. Barrett. He did the musical Man of Lamancha one year. My best friend was Ramona Shiroma who I have lost contact with. It was the wildest of times for me.

Who was the teacher that used to be a state trooper on the mainland? He wore an eye patch.

Thanks for getting back.
Yeah Fasi, Blaisdel and others ring bells about the sporting venues,
it was a long time ago...better days.
I remember the stadium's oxidised metal,(they must have done that on purpose)
Symbolic maybe of the natural red dirt?
You were a truck driver then?
How about these memories?
C.W. McCall's "convoy" And Movin'on on late night TV,
Sunday night, I think.

Yes, I was a truck driver then. The metal was meant to be oxidized, to protect itself, it had nothing to do with the color of the dirt. LOL, I hated those hokey trucking shows. The Blaisedel was renamed, from the H.I.C.(Honolulu International Center) sometime in the seventies. I remember the marijuana smoke would choke you out when they had a big-name concert. I still call it H.I.C. to this day.

I just knew you would know!
It was certainly unique in appearance, I don't think I've ever seen
that concept anywhere else, either traveling, or on the tele.
Which brings me to;
Movin' on, Route'66, Then Came Bronson, Three For The Road
(I'd be surprised if anyone, besides myself watched that one)
were all favourites of mine, I suppose they are "hokey" but I love seeing
other parts of the country in person or on the tele.
What were the call letters for Honolulu's country radio station back then?
and has it survived?

The rust idea was taken from some other project in the world, but the brainiacs of Honolulu didn't take into consideration that steel isn't all the same alloy. Good idea, badly utilized.

I think the radio station was called KJPN, out of Waipahu. It is a still-used facility in Waipahu, about as big as a one-car garage. I don't know who's in there now

I stand corrected. The country radio station in Waipahu, was KAHU, changed to KDEO.

K-DEO. It's somebody's house now along PArrington Highway.
I drove through just last week--still got Betty's pink apartments and Time's, but Depot Road is nothing like the 1970's when my Dad would drive ALLL the way to Waipahu just to buy something at Arakawa's.

Arakawa's was the store to go to when you couldn't find it anywhere else. I also used to go to Buster's across the street for all my fishing gear, and he would always end selling me bicycles for ridiculous prices. I miss Kilgo's too, the only place in town where you could buy stainless steel items that wouldn't rust. The radio station still has the antennae towers, doesn't it? I used to sell fish to Times, but I have a bad memory of that place. In 1984, by friend had the first new SS Monte Carlo on the island, and his wife drove it to Times. I was in the parking lot and watched a Samoan woman purposely kick her car door into the Monte just to damage it. I went in and told my friend's wife what what happened, but of course the cops called it "accidental."

KILGO'S!
That place was a GUY's store of stores. Every working man's toy you could think of. I think I still have a coil of manila hemp in my tool shed. I have my uncle's boat anchors he bought from A. L. Kilgo himself, but no boat anymore. As for the SS, that's a real bum deal.
