Hawai‘i Public Radio’s 2014 Atherton summer season closes on Saturday, September 13, with From Me to You, an evening of spoken word and song from the producers of the popular radio program Aloha Shorts. Listeners continued to ask for the weekly program of literature by Hawai‘i’s writers read by local actors after its final broadcast at the end of 2012. The station has responded by inviting the show’s former producing team to create an Atherton event in a similar format. In turn, co-producers Sammie Choy, Craig Howes, and Phyllis S.K. Look enlisted renowned Hawaiian scholar, educator, musician, and composer Jonathan K. Osorio to host and provide musical direction and accompaniment. Reservations for From Me to You (formerly known by its working title Sincerely, Hawai‘i) may be made at www.hprtickets.org or by calling the station (955-8821) during regular business hours.
