Perhaps it was just a coincidence that Apollo 11 was launched to space at just about the same time KTUH made its maiden voyage into Hawaii's airspace.

From its humble 60 watt beginnings in 1969 to the present day 7,000 watts, KTUH has been a force to be reckoned with - bold sounds, totally student driven, alternative, edgy. This has been the vision for KTUH for 50 years and what listeners and supporters expect. 50 years on the air, 24/7 all year round island-wide coverage is no small feat and KTUH is celebrating this milestone in style.

KTUH is excited to announce The Richard Thompson Electric Trio headlining our October 4th celebration at Hawaiian Brian's in Honolulu. Direct from the UK and a sold out concert at the Royal Albert Hall, legendary musician Richard Thompson will be there with KTUH alumni and ardent fans. Not to be missed will be the opportunity to meet Fred Barbaria, KTUH's co-founder and General Manager (1969 - 1973) and the line of subsequent general managers, including Smee Wong, KTUH's current General Manager.

The concert with the famed Richard Thompson Electric Trio will begin at 8:00pm, followed by The KTUH After Party featuring Z-Trip from 11:00pm till closing. Other KTUH 50th anniversary celebration events include a silent auction, a KTUH merchandise store, and KTUH themed trivia.
