Yeah, yeah, yeah. Some guy played the ukulele on the season finale of some show the other night. Now everyone is buzzing about it. Call me jaded, but Iz (sic) Somewhere Over the Rainbow now to the ukulele what Stairway to Heaven was to hack dorm room guitar players in the 70s? (So much so that I recall guitar shops during the day posting notices prohibiting its playing.)
But there is a redeeming aspect to the story. At least the producers had the good sense and taste to feature a Kamaka (which they borrowed, then liked so much they bought it).
Here's a news segment from KHON in Honolulu featuring Chris Kamaka. And a gratuitous clip of some guy from some show... Link
