    Each year, Tim Taylor makes his homage to our 50th and, perhaps, greatest state of the union, the islands of Hawaii.  On this year's trip, Tim decided that the sandy beaches, warm trade winds, whale watching, deep sea fishing, and drinking a mai tai at his favorite tiki hut were just too enjoyable and decided to extend his trip by a week.  But wait, what about the radio show?  Well, the show must go on and on it did.  So, you say to yourself, "What does Hawaii have to do with Irish culture!"  More than you think!  On this episode the Emerald Isle meets the Isles of Hawaii featuring music from Irish and Irish American artist such as Rosemary Clooney who recorded her last album in Honolulu, HI along with the Big Kahuna and the Copa Cat Pack big band and the Honolulu Symphony Pops and how about Bing Crosby?  Yep, he recorded dozens of Hawaiian themed songs and dedicated an entire album to the Islands.  Elvis Presley, you say?  Well, he filmed three movies on the Islan
