Trivia (1)

Popular Hawaiian singer, long a regular on Webley Edwards's popular "Hawaii Calls" radio show, whose recordings on American Decca and Capitol records were very popular with U.S. Mainland audiences during the 1950s. At the time of his sudden death from a heart attack at the age of 40, he was preparing to make a guest appearance on Dinah Shore's popular TV show. Most feel that the mainstream success that came Don Ho's way in the 1960s would probably have been Apaka's had he lived longer.
