A Real Voice on Krater 96.3

I haven’t been listening to Krater 96.3 in the mornings recently due to the loss of voices. In place of the daily performances of Gregg, Shawnee, and Wayne, there’s now a constant drone of music. Normally, hearing uninterrupted music isn’t a bad thing, but I admit it gets boring fast. Especially in the early hours […]

But I can't. Not on […]

Six Years of Hammertime on Krater

Well, I don’t know how to approach this other to say it’s been an awesome six-year run of Hammertime on Krater when Davey, Gregg, and Shawnee debuted their morning show on Tuesday, October 22, 2013. As all us fans have noticed, Davey D, the facilitator of the morning mayhem, has been absent from the air […]

Where’s Davey D?

For about two weeks now, Davey D of Krater 96 hasn’t been on Hammertime in the mornings. Where’d he go? For a brief moment, both he and Shawnee were off-air, but Shawnee’s since returned. The crew might have mentioned why Wayne is now coordinating the show, but I missed the reason. Anyone know where’s Davey […]

Why Danielle Tucker Is the Best Traffic Reporter

Yup, Danielle is definitely the best traffic reporter on Oahu. Not only are her traffic reports detailed, understandable, and extremely useful, but she interacts with her audience, helping them through their commute. Case in point was Tuesday’s traffic debacle. Leaving work almost immediately I ran into a backlog of cars, and time ticked by trying […]

Poor Radio Reception

Any Lexus owners out there have poor radio reception with the stock deck? We got a used Lexus that’s newer than our (former) Toyotas, but the radio reception is so bad. Driving my normal routes, the FM radio reception is staticky and even drops out at certain spots. This didn’t happen with the Toyota stereos. […]

A Shoutout from Gregg Hammer

What a way to start Thursday morning! I had just pulled out of my driveway for my morning commute with the radio tuned to KRTR 96.3. Aunty Mildred Kaneakala was kicking off the morning’s Story Time when I heard my name on air. Wait, what was that? Did I hear Gregg Hammer as Aunty just […]

HD Radio in Hawaii

So I just learned that HD radio is indeed available in Hawaii and has been in the islands since 2007. Without HD radio compatible gear, it never mattered to me. But now that I can tune into HD broadcasts, I was looking for tunes in HD. Sadly, there’s not much. Can you tell what music […]
