April Fools Radio Fun: Kool Gold 107.9 had some fun yesterday; they told listeners that they would be changing formats. It would be a new K-Pop radio station for Honolulu. Afternoon radio announcer Bart De Silva hosted the change. The station was not changing formats; it was an April Fools Joke. The station was flooded with calls from listeners. They did it for about 20 min. I talked with Program Director Alan Miya, he says the REAL change was that Bart De Silva would be moving to mornings on OLDIES Kool Gold 107.9
Hawaiian 105 KINE had fun yesterday at Billy V’s expense. They announced for April Fools that Billy V was returning to radio.

The Na Hoku Hanohano Awards are coming up; this Saturday he will be featuring the final ballot nominees from the2019 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards.
