  1. Aloha Vernon, I’m really happy to hear that 808talk will go on! Just do what you can, when you can. Treat it as a hobby, not as an obligation, ya know? You do a great job, and as a long time listener just knowing that 808talk will go on is great so hear. It doesn’t need to be every week, and if you miss a week don’t even worry about it! Trust me, i’m probably one of your biggest fans… Even if there’s the odd month where you put out ONE show i’ll be content.

    Plus you know that your listeners have either been to Hawaii, or just live the Hawaiian style of life, we’re a laid back crew i’d say.

    So to close this off, I’m thrilled you’ll still keep it going when you can, losing it completely would’ve left a big void. Plus if you put out shows just here and there it makes those shows more special.

    Big Mahalo,

    p.s. I also watched the Warriors live cast thing on ESPN for the Warriors, Insane game! I highly recommend this feature at espn.com. I’m a huge Hockey fan, Calgary Flames are my team, got season tickets but man, UH Warrior ball is 2nd place for me, whatever form I can follow it!

    Go #15 and Go Warriors!


  2. I am thrilled that it will continue!

    Ja matte ne! =^.^=

  3. I’d like to say that Falsetto is not only for Males

  4. @Dr. Trey: Would you say that in Hawaiian Falsetto that there is more males than females or the other way around?

  6. My good buddy VSB. It was nice talking to you last week. Glad to see things are going okay and nice to hear the news in this weeks show. Hopefully I’ll finally get out there to see you buddy. Talk at ya later.

  7. Hi there!

    Glad to hear that you won’t be disappearing from the podcast world just yet. Anything you find time to do will will be wholeheartedly appreciated. Good luck as you continue to adapt to the changes in your personal and professional life.

    Also since it’s 9/11, just wanted to take an opportunity to say thank you very much for your service to our country. I have a lot of friends and family in the military and I’m continually amazed and grateful for the daily integrity, courage and fortitude of everyone who serves, both behind the scenes and on the frontlines.

  8. Glad to hear that you’ve decided to keep podcasting, at least on a limited basis. I would have expressed my opinions earlier but was busy moving over the last couple of weeks and was barely able to get the podcasts much less email, etc. Anyway, I’ve always loved Hawaii, its culture and its music. Your podcast is one of my favorites along with Makena’s (which I probably 1st heard about through you BTW). I’ve met them out here as well and participate on their podcast whenever I can. I was going to suggest that you limit your # of podcasts rather than quit as well because after all, this stuff is free to us and it’s not as though 808Talk is network show that requires constant/regularly scheduled broadcasts. Do it at your leisure. 808Talk is supposed to be something you enjoy and do to distract you from other things like laundry or painting the house not a burden. Don’t worry about the apparent lack of participation. I heard your secret message at the end of that previous podcast but didn’t do anything because I was listening at work. Maybe the lack of participation is kind of like when you watch a TV program you love. You watch it because you enjoy it and to relax. Asking people to rise up and do anything during it is always going to be pretty tough. I’m sure that you would be surprised to hear how many people actually listen to your podcast vs. those that participate. Honestly, to get 2-3% participation out of thousands of listeners is still plenty. How many people participate in radio station promotions vs. the # of listeners? Don’t worry about it…

  9. Vern,

    Just wanted to say THANK YOU for NOT stopping the show. I’ve been listening for a year now and was hoping your show would continue. Do what you can when you can in reguards to the show. Due in part to your show my girlfriend and I decided to come and visit Oahu back in May. I thank you Vern. I hope this one posts as my last comment on your last weeks show did not.

  10. 808Talkしてくれてありがとう。日本語が最近あまり話してないからたぶんちょっとへん。

    Have your wife translate this for you (^_^). Eric

  11. Hey man! Thanks for not stopping the show. I was just catching up on podcasts this weekend when I heard you were going to quit. I was pretty upset until I listened to the next podcast and found out that you’ll continue on when you can. My wife and I have been listening to your podcasts and watching your vodcasts for over a year now. They’ve become a regular feature in our lives and we’ve enjoyed them immensely. They’re very informative, entertaining, and fun. Don’t stress yourself out about putting out a podcast every week. I’ll take whatever 808Talk I can get, whenever I can get it. Thanks for providing such a great podcast and thanks for your service to our country. Take care and ALOHA!

  12. @All – Once again thanks for all the wonderful emails and words of encouragement. No matter what, I just can’t bring myself to quit one of the things I love the most and that’s sharing Hawaii with all of you! When things permit, you folks will always have a show and the latest and greatest from Hawaii.

  13. Thanks so much for the podcasts. Some of us out here listen to them all, but never take the time to say thank you. I hope you keep it up. Your podcasts are great. I spent a week in Honolulu this month. Got to visit the Missouri for a second time. The first time was at Bremmerton when it was in mothballs. I was the only one aboard. Not so at Pearl Harbor. My father saw the Missouri in Tokyo Bay when the war ended. He was on the Alabama. Tell us more about Hawaii, OK? Kauai, in particular!
