Henry Kailimai and Ford's Hawaiians

We received a nice note from Catherine U'ilani Blankenship, Henry Kailimai's great granddaughter, in response to today's earlier post about Edison recordings (below):
"Mahalo for the information! And mahalo for extending the message of my great grandfather's life's work!

In June of 2004 a radio station in New York produced a show called "Thomas Edison's Attic" during which they played many of the cylinder and disc recordings Edison produced at his West Orange New Jersey Lab. My great grandfather, Henry Kailimai, and his group are on the playlist performing "Wiliwili Wai." They are about 12 minutes into the show."

Here's a link to the show: Link (Thanks, Catherine!)
