Try calling the radio station. Our local DJ's are pretty helpful.

You could also try an app to identify a song. Below is link for some and you can Google for others.

evolver.fm/2012/…

I forget what app I used a while back on my tablet but started app up and put tablet near speaker and it did identify the song I was interested in.

Radio station web site may even tell you name of song as it plays. KONG radio does and maybe others:

4. Re: Heard a song in Kauai..now can't find it =(

as vistors quite some time ago, we heard a song on KONG radio that we really liked ....

So, we saw a music store up in Kapa'a, went in, and I sang the the chorus for the clerk....

She said that is John Cruz, from his tape Aacoustic Soul, song is ISLAND STYLE, and it is in row such and such.

Pretty simple, we purchased it as a tape, and later got the C.D. Still have it.

The same thing happened to us that occured to the OP, once we first heard it, we were singing along and could not get the chourus out of our heads. He still comes over to Kauai to perform a couple times a year.

A few years back, we went to a concert at KCC, and John Cruz was entertaining along with other artists.

He sang a whole lot of new songs, the performance was over , and he unplugged his guitar. We were seated /standing one row back from the front. A lady in the seat in front of us, shouted out : "How about ISLAND STYLE?" John was walking across the stage to leave, I followed up with the same request, so did others in the audience who had not left their seats.

John stopped right in front of us and said " You want to hear that old song ?" Others chimed in supporting the same request. He stood right in front of us, unplugged, and started playing while about 200 or so of the audience, all standing, including us, sang along with him. Pretty special way to end the concert .

Aloha from Kaua'i!

Sounds like "Island Music" as opposed to "Hawaiian Music"......you might try calling Ron Wiley at KQNG Radio here or emailing him....he is wonderfully helpful and I wouldn't be at all surprised if he was able to "name that song" for you.

We also got hooked on a song years ago visiting Maui. It was in Hawaiian and a very patient DJ was able to tell us what it was so we could buy the CD. Good luck. It will happen.

The original poster could try asking at Kong Facebook page. Just a few days ago a listener posted lyrics and asked for the song title and the radio station answered the post:
