BEST RADIO STATION
Not a bad choice at all. Mana’o Radio—91.5 on your FM dial—is one of Maui’s more colorful stations. It’s one of the few low-power FM stations in the country, so it’s on a shoestring, but their all-volunteer crew of jocks put some very unique and colorful material on the air. That’s because they all know music, and they’re on the air solely because they love radio and despise canned, corporate playlists. Some, like station manager Barry Shannon, Kathy Collins and Bill Best are veterans; others like Don Lopez had never worked radio before showing up at Mana’o. All bring something special to the airwaves.
