    Those are some fantastic clips, I was thinking I was missing out a lot by not bringing my cameras. Having Alan Akaka stop by really kicked it over the top, how often do we get to see a train whistle...

    Sigh is right, the kind of place that reaches out and grabs you, hard to let go. Chuck and Bonnie really made it special.

    I have to say that Led has been through _plenty_ ukes since I've known him and even more before that, but since he got his Moore Bettah uke he put all the others in storage.

    Led Kaapana at Chuck Moore's house

    Led and his wife took us around his end of Hawai`i Island and it goes without saying that we had a stupendous time. One of the high points was a visit to Chuck Moore's home - a place as lovely and...

    I bought a 1949 T-18 on Ebay for a bargain price ... which was due to the marginal condition of the instrument, I'm afraid. Fortunately I found someone who did a lovely job of restoring the tiple...

    It's hard to express how wonderful that uke really is. I was impressed the first time I saw it, but I never expected Led to make it his "road" uke. It turned out to be so excellent that he can't bear...

    Nuts, I agree. Even more nuts, Norm's videos are just a small part of a Ledward show, and mine are just a few minutes out of hours of jamming. I often think I'm one of the luckiest people in the...
