"Antique Aloha: Hawaiian Music of the Golden Age" - A 78 RPM record presentation

During "The Hawaiian Craze" from 1915 to 1925 more Hawaiian records were sold than any other genre of music! As a result there are some important firsts that happened in the Hawaiian music genre that were also firsts in the history of recorded music. Join avid 78RPM record collector and professional musician Christo Ruppenthal for a vintage record listening session. Christo will add historical context and significance to the 78 RPM records you will hear. They will be played on original circa 1910 Victor Monarch IV and 1913 Victor III horned phonographs, and a vintage portable tube powered record player. Step back into this "Golden Age of Hawaiian Music" for some Antique Aloha!
