This week in 1966: Herman’s Hermits land in Honolulu, ready to begin a one-week vacation. After a sold-out tour of Japan, the teen idols arrive at The Kahala anxious to check in, only to find out that their British travel agent goofed and no reservations were made. Their manager, Harvey Lisberg, calls me in a panic - and after checking around I discover that there isn’t a single open hotel room in town. What to do? My wife Sweetie is dancing for the HVB in Scotland, leaving me in a house sporting seven empty bedrooms. So the entourage hides out in humble Nu’uanu - and I mean they really hide! If word gets out that Peter Noone and the guys are in the neighborhood, we’ll be overrun with young Hermits fans…

The No. 1 record in Hawaii is, Listen People by Herman’s Hermits.
