GORGEOUS BAI LING took a week off from the Crank 2 movie set in Hollywood to relax at a secluded beach in Hawaii ...

Fun fact: Ling was a soldier in the People’s Liberation Army in Linzhi, Tibet. Her duties ... entertaining the troops.

The Reef began filming at the Hawaii Yacht Club and around Waikiki before heading to West Oahu for filming ocean scenes. The two leading actresses are Parvati Shallow and Amanda Kimmel. You may recognize them as the two finalists on Survivor Micronesia. Shallow was voted 5 to 3 against Kimmel to walk away with a cool $1 million ...

The Kalo Awards “Mahalo Mom and Pops” Video Competition will broadcast on KHON TV2 this Wednesday, May 21, at 9 p.m. immediately following the season finale of American Idol. You’ll see entries from 30 schools across the state that “adopted” a mom-and-pop store in their neighborhood and produced a 30- or 60-second commercial for the video competition.

This Week In 1959 ... The 15th Show of Stars comes to the Civic Auditorium. Prior to the show I travel to Japan to “find” a Japanese singer to appear in the Civic Auditorium series and discover Masaaki Hirao. He appears here the following year and is a big hit with local fans. Before departing, I had made a talent suggestion for the show with partners Earl Finch and Ralph Yempuku. When I arrive home, I am pleasantly surprised to find that I will be introducing on stage that night ... Johnny Maestro & the Crests, who bring the crowd to their feet singing 16 Candles.

The No. 1 record in Hawaii is A Fool Such As I by Elvis Presley ...

50 Years of Radio & Rock Stars - see and read all about them. From them. From Elvis to Elton, Mariah to Britney ... Jimmy Buffett, Led Zeppelin The Stones, Clapton and much more in Uncle Tom’s best-selling book “Showman Of The Pacific,” written by Jerry Hopkins and available at leading stores and online at amazon.com.
