Listen for a new interview with Tower Of Power’s leader / tenor sax monster / founder Emilio Castillo. I recorded it today and will be featuring it next week during the afternoon on – KHPR, during NPR’s All Things Considered. We had a long conversation, nearly a half-hour, covering TOP’s extensive island history, his own personal connections with Hawaii, the international phenomenon of their continued success, touching stories of promoter/rock legend Bill Graham, and much more.Just the Bill Graham stories alone make this a special conversation, and I look forward to presenting some of it next week and posting an extended interview segment 0n my Dave Lawrence Reports page at HPR. Catch Tower Of Power June 3 in Honolulu and click here to get Blaisdell Concert Hall tickets, and for the Valley Isle, June 4 on Maui, click here for the MACC in Kahului.
