A voice from the past

By Star-Bulletin Staff

Radio legend and music promoter Tom Moffatt returns to the airwaves for a weekly show from 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays, beginning March 29, on KGMZ FM also known as Oldies 107.9.

Moffatt's radio show will feature hits of the late '50s and '60s, with memories of Hawaii as a young state. The show is geared toward kama 'aina, ages 35 to 54, according to station manager John Matthews.

Moffatt built his reputation as one of the "Poi Boys" -- the others were Don Robbs, Tom Rounds, Dave Donnelly and Ron Jacobs -- of the old K-POI Radio, who ruled the airwaves of Honolulu in the early '60s. "Uncle Tom" was so popular, he hosted two shows per day.

Moffatt is currently Hawaii's top concert and events promoter, responsible for bringing the world's biggest acts to Oahu, ranging from Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and the Rolling Stones to Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey and *N Sync.

In addition to hearing the Tom Moffatt show on 107.9 FM in Honolulu, listeners around the world can tune in at
