It's Friday night. Time to unwind with our regular Friday night feature on This Just In.

The weekend has finally arrived.

The sun has set.

The evening sky has erupted. 

Let's put controversy and provocative blogs aside for the rest of this work week and smooth our way into Saturday and Sunday.

Football fanatics have to wait another weekend for the big one, the Super Bowl. This weekend, it’s the Pro Bowl, a game that became a colossal joke with behemoths handling each other like ballet dancers.

But the game is in Hawaii, where you have all that great scenery.



And then there’s all that great scenery.







 The cheerleaders selected to be at the 2013 Pro Bowl.

Some friends of mine will be in Honolulu for Sunday’s game having the good fortune to be Pro Bowl season ticket holders. You can imagine the great street and tailgate parties.

Tonight on our Friday night feature, some music selections my friends might hear on the radio in their rental cars.




Next up, Kapala with the title from the zip code of the city of Waimanalo on the island of Oahu.

Waimanolo Beach.

We continue with lovely Hawaiian guitar.



I know. Wish you were there.

That’s it for this week.

Good night.

Sleep well.

Have a hang loose weekend.

Many vocalists are recording their takes on the great American songbook. In Hawaii, there are classics that are standards in the islands that will stand the test of time. We close with one of them, “Hanalei Moon” by the smooth silky voice of Dennis Pavao.
