ALOHA, TINSELTOWN! A few celebrities spotted in the Isles over the New Year’s weekend - William Shatner of Star Trek and one of the best shows on television, Boston Legal, spotted windsurfing! Also, the gorgeous Heather Thomas dining at Sabrina’s. Seen on Maui: Neil Patrick Harris, Alice Cooper, Tom Arnold and Cuba Gooding Jr. ...

Entertaining this week at the 10th annual Sony Open ... Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, A.J. McLean and Nick Carter - collectively know as The Backstreet Boys ...


Support The Breathe Concert - a benefit for the American Lung Association featuring some of our Island favorites including Raiatea Helm, Yvonne Elliman, Afatia, Danny Couch and former Honolulu resident Tiffany Thurston (recently making her world CD debut with L.I.F.E.)

My good friend of nearly 50 years, Judy “The Bugle” Tannen, manager to Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorm for most of that time, invited me to her special birthday celebration at Spago’s in Beverly Hills. Some of Hollywood’s elite were in attendance such as Barbara (Mrs. Frank) Sinatra, Tim Conway of the Carol Burnett Show, Steve and Eydie (of course), and Mike Connors - award-winning star of the television series Mannix. All 50 dignitaries and I sang Happy Birthday to Judy ... and to my surprise they turned around to sing to yers truly, too! Of all the stars, I got the biggest thrill when Bob Crewe joined in the singing. Bob who? The man who wrote most of the hits for Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons, revived in the country’s hottest touring Broadway show, Jersey Boys - hits such as Sherry, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Big Girls Don’t Cry, Rag Doll and many more…

The reason for the surge is UH basketball coach Larry Little, who approaches me about entertainment possibilities to increase attendance. Why not the Beach Boys in a post-game concert on a rolling stage shipped in from the Mainland? The game finishes, out rolls the stage and the concert begins. I’m amazed that the young cheerleaders from all over the country sang along to the Beach Boys’ songs, many of which were hits way before they were born ...

The No. 1 record in Hawaii is The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson...
