Antiques Road Show was currently in Honolulu, HI. While there they stopped at the Kamaka factory. Not a long piece, but it needs to be here 🙂 Enjoy, it is at Chapter 10 of this video.

George Harrison was a huge advocate for the ukulele. He loved playing them, and even giving them away. On one trip to Hawaii I was told a story that George would go around the island and buy all the Kamaka’s he could find (now I don’t know if it was a certain size he was after, or if he just bought any and all), and he would then give them away.
Below you’ll find a letter that George wrote on Flea Market Music letterhead about the ukulele as well as videos of George playing some of his Kamaka’s.
