I saw an episode of "Visiting with Huel Howser" that featured a senior ukulele group here in LA. It was wonderful! There must have been 40 or 50 people, all playing the uke! I'm not sure, but I think that King Uke was in the show too. Anybody have any info on this group, or did anyone see the episode?

It really was a fun episode, I wished I had known that would be the topic and I would have taped it. But it looks like it is available on tape. It would be cool to invite that group of 30+ seniors to perform at next years Tiki Oasis!!! How 'bout it guys, book'em!!

I just watched this episode, which is such a great time capsule, with Denny Moynahan/King Kukulele, group ukulele playing, and Huell dancing to "The Hukilau" (which is much better than his "Mai Tai Dance" at Oceanic Arts).
