Looks like I missed Life on Four Strings, the documentary on Jake's life, both times it aired this month on PBS Hawaii (darn!)

But as a consolation, I did find his recent interview with Leslie Wilcox, long-time Hawaii news anchor. If you wanted to learn more about his background, I don't think there's anything better...short of perhaps the aforementioned documentary.

If you're interested and haven't seen it yet, here you go!

And if you don't have 30 min, here's my favorite 2 minutes.

How to win the ladies like Jake Shimabukuro

Spoiler:
Agree to a blind date, get sick, cancel...reschedule 3 years later. LOL.

I hope that after PBS national airs it it goes up for streaming on their site like HeartStrings, the Kamaka Story.

Can this be also downloaded as an audio podcast?

Petey--paste the youtube link in the converter, and bing...it's an mp3 audio podcast. Dozens of sites do this (if this one no longer works, just google youtube mp3 converter).

How do you think I have your songs on my iPod so I can listen to them while I bicycle?
