However, when it went off the air in 1975, only 10 stations were airing the show. Because of its positive portrayal of Hawaii, the show received a subsidy for many years -- first from government of the Territory of Hawaii, and then from the State of Hawaii. The termination of the subsidy was one of the reasons that the show went off the air [See: Kanahele, George S., Hawaiian Music and Musicians: An Illustrated History] In 1992 another program used the name for a one year run in another Waikiki hotel but failed to attracted enough financial support to continue.
