Jim Burns, guest on Long Story Short

Jim Burns
Tuesday, August 5, 7:30 pm

If you call Jim Burns a haole he would likely take offense. His father, John A. Burns, always thought of himself as a local boy. Jim, who grew up in Kailua and easily breaks into Pidgin English, sees himself the same way. As Jim was growing up, he saw the respect that his father had for Hawaii immigrants, and learned that being a local boy was about more than just speaking Pidgin.

This program is available in high-definition and will be rebroadcast on Wed., Aug. 6 at 11:00 pm and Sun., Aug. 10 at 4:00 pm.
