At the April 3rd live taping, AS goes green, with readings on sustainability. Phyllis says:

"Aloha Shorts dedicates its upcoming live taping to Earth Day with stories and poems about sustainability in our islands. Scheduled for Sunday, April 3, at Hawaii Public Radio's Atherton Studio, this FREE event begins at 6:45 pm with a musical set by Aloha Shorts' ever-'green' house band Hamajang. Aloha Shorts tapings are regularly filled to capacity and audiences are encouraged to reserve their seats at the earliest opportunity by calling the station (during business hours) at 955-8821."
