Back in the day: Fred Rico and me taking
a break and clowning around off the air
THE SPIRIT OF giving proved to be alive and well at KSSK’s Perry and Price Saturday Morning show at John Dominis last weekend. Sweetie Pacarro‘s teenage daughter Courtney brought happy and proud tears to many when she decided to donate 10 inches of her beautiful hair to the Locks of Love organization. Reenie Ray, Locks of Love Hawaii event organizer, was on hand for the live on-air cutting. And the generous donation of hair didn’t stop there - PJ DelaCruz, producer of News Radio’s Rick Hamada Show on AM 830 KHVH, gave up her lovely locks earlier in the week to the nonprofit organization for the second year in a row - appearing on television for viewers to see the entire process. (I just love this kind of stuff!! Courtney, PJ, rock on!) Locks of Love provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. ...
In that spirit of giving is veteran columnist Eddie Sherman, whose new book, Frank, Sammy, Marlon and Me: Adventures in Paradise with the Celebrity Set, is in stores now - a perfect gift for many! The 200-plus page hardcover book is full of Sherman’s personal experiences with Hollywood elite, including Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor and many others.

From giving to goodbyes, a big aloha goes out to KIKI & KDNN program director, Fred Rico, who says bon voyage to our Island state after seven years in local radio. The Osake Sushi Bar & Lounge was the destination of choice for the bittersweet farewell party last week Friday. I know from personal experience that the halls of Clear Channel will not be the same without Fred Rico. Good luck, Fred, thanks for the laughs, the jokes and the good times! ... The good times kept rolling last weekend downtown at Next Door, where a packed crowd celebrated Different Game, the newest musical release by Makana.
VIPs in attendance included KITV news anchor Mahealani Richardson, concert promoter Bill Silva, KSSK promotions director Jamie Hartnett and Clear Channel general manager Chuck Cotton. ...
