    on a visit to Hawai'i.  It is very interesting how the Hawai'ian music played on the radio there spans the generations in its audience and popularity.  I also noticed moe Jamaican cross-fertilization going on in the music, but I though it was a good thing.

    Mahalo.

      I only discovered him recently. Don't even really remember how unless it was searching for the Whisper of the Heart version of Country Roads I came across Israel's version. I am guessing that was how I discovered him but however it happened, I am glad I did.
