Earlier this year, the Hawai‘i State Archives received
two historic collections of records. One of the
collections was from long-time radio personality and
host of Territorial Airwaves, Harry B. Soria Jr. The other collection was from an Englishman who
resided in Toronto, Canada named Michael Scott. In all, the collections equal roughly 20,000 records,
with the earliest dating back to 1905. Contained within
these priceless vinyl artifacts is much of the history
of Hawaiian recorded music.
