F-L-Y To Hawaii With The Rascals!
When The Rascals' huge Pan Am jet landed in Honolulu's beautiful Hilo International Airport, Felix, Dino, Gene and Eddie were staggered by the fantastic reception awaiting them. Hawaii's top radio station K-poi had been announcing for days that the islands' faves - The Rascals, of course - were due there soon for a five-day series of concerts. No slackers - those Hawaiian fans - they turned out 2,000 strong to meet and greet The Young Rascals.
The boys, who have visited Hawaii twice previously, decided to extend their visit to seven days, so that when they concluded their work they could let loose and enjoy a little play. So c'mon along with Gene, Dino, Eddie and Felix and share their glorious Hawaiian interlude of work, play, fun and sun!
First stop for the Rascals is a press conference
conducted by K-poi deejay Bob Lowrie - also
known as "The Fifth Rascal"

in the entire history of the islands! The Byrds
were guest stars on the bill with them.
