SONNY: ” How’s your Hibiscus, Granny?”
GRANNY: “Well, it’s bloomin’ right big, but it’s not smellin’ right.”
When cars were bigger than most bedrooms and burned more gas than a chain of Mexican restaurants could generate. When men wore Hawaiian shirts in public without shame, and Dad Jokes were considered poor taste. When patriots saluted the flag and knew the 50 states by heart; everyone knew Don Ho. During the whorling madness that developed into 1970s America, Don Ho was a living legend. A native Hawaiian himself, he was a staple on the Honolulu night club circuit and his signature song, Tiny Bubbles, was on the novelty play list of every variety show host, comedian and entertainer in the world. It was estimated that Don sang his personal anthem more than 100,000 times in his long and storied career, and the champagne it immortalized went on to set its own solid place in party history. Tonight, Doc and MadMan whoop their brand of Okie Tusk on Don Ho’s favorite ditty, and discuss the nature of world politics, episode count and the upcoming Okie Tusk Festival to be held May 11 at the Haskell County Courthouse lawn. Be there or be uncool, mere mortals. For DJAMM will ride and rail that night on site with The Destination, all right ! DJAMM it to heck !
