Aloha Shorts

Anyone who parks at the State Capitol underground lot on a regular basis will have seen, from time to time, Rep. Marcus Oshiro's white SUV, surfboard on the roof, and a pair of aloha print swim shorts drying on the antenna. Who better than Rep. Oshiro to perform a live reading of "Man Kine" as part of the Aloha Shorts radio program on Hawaii Public Radio?

The program tapes before a studio audience on the first Sunday of each month. The event is free, but reservations are recommended. Call 955-8821 to reserve your seat. "Man Kine" will tape on Sunday, November 1, 2009 at 6:45 p.m. You can catch the broadcast on Tuesday, November 3, 2009 at 6:30 p.m. on KIPO, 89.3 FM. In case you miss it, you can listen to the podcast via the Hawaii Public Radio website.
UPDATE: According to the show producers, this segment of Aloha Shorts won't be broadcast until sometime in January. We'll keep you posted.

Aloha Shorts is based on the writings from Bamboo Ridge Press. Three pieces with the theme of masculine identity were selected for the "Man Kine" show.

Rep. Oshiro is chair of the House Finance Committee and represents District 39 - Wahiawa, Whitmore Village, Launani Valley. He is an attorney. He has also acted in various community theater plays.
