Steel Trappings

New Playlist Feature

New Feature Coming May 1

April 28, 2021 • Addison ChingSteel Guitar History

A new monthly feature, "On the Playlist," will debut in Steel Trappings on May 1, 2021.

This feature will be authored by steel guitarist Geri Valdriz. Geri's other monthly feature "Geri's Vintage Steels" will be put on hiatus until further notice but may appear on occasion.

On the Playlist is also the name of a new feature that will be incorporated into Geri's weekly "Hawaiian Steel" radio program. This program is broadcast on Maui's Mana‘o Radio, KMNO FM 91.7 and on the Internet via manaoradio.com. This new radio feature will be broadcast on the first Tuesday of each month, while the Steel Trappings feature will be published on the first of each month, ahead of the radio broadcast. Prior broadcasts are archived and available at the Hawaiian Steel page.

On the Playlist features a Hawaiian steel guitar artist and/or bands and ensembles that use a Hawaiian steel guitar. The Steel Trappings feature will give a brief biographical sketch and history of the artist and include a list of currently-available CD selections by that artist which will be played during the radio broadcast.

Geri says the reason for doing this is so people hearing the music can go out and purchase the music so they can continue to enjoy the artist's performances. This would be difficult, if not impossible, if Geri used selections from vintage vinyl recordings or 78 RPM records.

Please follow this feature and tune in to Geri's radio program for background briefs about some of Hawaiian music's great steel guitarists and steel guitar bands.
