MUSIC VOYAGER
Yellow Roads: Italy – Amalfi Coast & Capri

 

Hosted by Paulino Duran, the Music Voyager travels the length of the Amalfi coast line, following the yellow roads off the main highways. From the sun drenched cliffs of Positano cruising along each seaside resort and small towns, to tasting the heavenly cuisines and sampling the unique culture as it becomes more of a personal journey, the team ends up at a private performance of the Tarantula musicians in a wine cellar on the southern coast of Italy.

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
The Road Usage Charge

 

The State uses money from its 16-cents-per-gallon gas tax to maintain and fix roads. But the development of more fuel-efficient cars, and electric and hybrid cars, means less money. Now the State wants feedback on a proposal to eliminate the tax and instead levy a per-mile road usage charge, which it says will cost motorists about the same amount. Join the discussion on the Road Usage Charge on INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI. You can phone in, or leave us a comment on Facebook or Twitter.
