Acoustic Luau with Maren Orion
Alternating Thursdays 6 - 8pm

I got turned on to the genre of Acoustic Music at the age of 14 with a trip to the Newport Folk Festival in 1967. I got to see Joni Mitchell, Buffy St Marie, Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Jim Kweskin and the Jug Band, The Staple Singers and more. I was hooked! As a youngster, I always dreamed of having my own radio show...and lo and behold, dreams do come true! I've been doing radio since 1995  ... before KKCR, I was a programmer on KVNF out of Paonia, Colorado.

I am so grateful to be here on Kaua'i, and to have the opportunity to share the music I love with listeners. I try to keep it fresh, featuring many of the artists whose CD's have found their way to KKCR's "New" rack. I will continue to expand my knowledge of contemporary acoustic music...

I appreciate suggestions from listeners about up and coming artists that they think will fit onto the show. E-mail me at

Malama pono a me mahalo for listening to KKCR
