What follows is a list of eight selected singles of local interest that racked up tons of airplay on KKUA between 1970 and 1974 (thanks to the year-end lists at the Hawaii Radio and Television Guide). Many of these sound like the music playing at a hotel supper club while Jack Lord's McGarrett pops in to ask the owner a few questions. The links take you to entries in this blog for a given song.

John Rowles - "Cheryl Moana Marie"
Sam Kapu - "Chatto Matte Kudasai (Never Say Goodbye)"
Honk - "Pipeline Sequence"
The Sweet Marie - "Stella's Candy Store"
