Comments on: Fred Barbaria: KTUH founder and fan http://www.hawaii.edu/malamalama/2010/07/fred-barbaria/ The magazine of the University of Hawai'i System Thu, 06 Sep 2012 21:11:28 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.8.1 By: Randy Wagner http://www.hawaii.edu/malamalama/2010/07/fred-barbaria/#comment-125042 Thu, 13 Oct 2011 20:09:56 +0000 http://www.hawaii.edu/malamalama/?p=5121#comment-125042 I just found this announcement of the KTUH alumni reunion and I am sorry I missed it. Being a jock on KTUH was a life changing experience for me back in 1973-75. I still see and party with Dave Dugle who had the Insanity Palace Show that was a hours of segued comedy! I was there when the first translater went up for the north shore and tripled our listening audience. We had a blast! The concerts we put on in Andrews to raise money for the translaters (Sprirt, Leo Koetke, The Jazz Crusaders, and this new band that nobody had heard of Journey) all were great nights to remember. You are cruising with the flagship of progressive rock and roll–KTUH FM in Honolulu
Aloha
Randy

Eventually, I had two different shows. One was called Music of the World’s People and this show was the first to be heard when KTUH went on air beyond the campus and Mayor Frank Fasi came to the station for this occasion. The other show I did with Wesley Furumoto. It was called, Pakalolo Patch. It was a live show featuring most of the local folk and Hawaiian musicians around at that time. It was housed in a fantasy that we were broadcasting from the last undiscovered valley on Oahu, and every Tuesday, (if I remember correctly) musicians would drop by to visit and jam. This was a very popular show and lasted until I went to the mainland for more graduate studies. I don’t remember if Richard was still around at that time, but I do remember Richard being a tough professional station manager, but very supportive of our endeavors.

I loved my time as a classical music commentator at the station in the early 1970s. It gave me a terrific foundation for broadcast (Communications) in which I majored at UH.
