Hear a new extended interview segment from HPR that I did the other day with The Four Tops only surviving original member Duke Fakir. We had a cool second interview at the Blaisdell just before their show, and I grabbed some pics there; this is one of them. Solid cat for sure.
I spoke with the sole surviving member of The Temptations and here’s the HPR Extended Interview. Get more of my latest interviews on-demand there at hawaiipublicradio.org/news/davelawrence plus other content I’m posting there.
The pic is from the Blaisdell just before their show here the other day.
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 http://hawaiipublicradio.org – 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.
