Me: What's up with that?
Isaac: Mom, this is Honolulu, nothing is free.
But on the first Sunday of the month, in the cozy Hawaii public radio building on Atherton Street, Aloha Shorts tapes three shows for their Tuesday Aloha Shorts program and everyone is invited to be an audience member and hear live readings for FREE. The catch? It's first come, first reserved.
The trick: friend them on Facebook
When they announce the new show, call the studio the next day
Get to the radio station on the night of the taping by 6:30pm (it will last about two and a half hours)
It beats watching Sunday night television. So if you're a fan of literature, especially literature about Hawaii, this is the best and cheapest show in town.
The photo above is snaked from the Facebook page and it's Norman Munoz from this month's show on the Body. He's reading Lee Cataluna's "Curt Lum (true story)" from her book of vignettes People You Meet in Longs
