Hitting the Airwaves
Saturday, August 13, 2016
21 members of the combined class of '69 showed up at the KSSK Perry and Price radio show on a recent Saturday morning. As Sandy Nishimoto, wife of Alan Nishimoto (RHS'69) reports...
Vincent Yim got beat up.
The idea was to get the word out to all '69 alumni about the great activities coming up in September. See here for what they are.
The Jade Dynasty Restaurant next Ala Moana Center is famous for its dim sum and the KSSK Saturday radio show.
Twenty-one members of the Combined Class of'69 from Kaimuki, Kalani, McKinley and RHS managed to get up early and took over two tables – right up front.
Host Michael W. Perry opened the show about 8:15 and went straight to their tables. RHS reunion committee chair Vincent Yim was tagged with a Sumo challenge with 900-pound Sockita Tumi.
While quite anxious to get into his mawashi – Michael W. Perry had to remind him that this was only a radio show. Yes, radio is theater of the mind.
After being smashed by Sockita Tumi , and a short shoulder rub by KSSK's Sweetie Pacarro, he was recovered enough to talk about the good times ahead.
