Navigating the world through sound.

Central Pacific Time is an online radio station in Honolulu, Hawai‘i. Through live broadcasts, podcasts, events and collaborations, CPT serves as a direct line to Hawaiʻi’s independent music scene and culture. When we launched in January 2018, we took a leap of faith to make CPT a reality: what we lacked monetarily we knew we had to made up for with drive, passion, and dedication. 

However, we need your support to cover our basic costs, which includes:
  • equipment — turntables, mixers, microphones, laptop, software
  • licensing — BMI, ASCAP, SoundExchange and others
  • insurance — peace of mind for the equipment we purchased
  • rent — including buildout materials for our studio

We're asking for your support. In exchange, we're giving you a variety of benefits and rewards, like:

  • access to premium content
  • invites to special events
  • quarterly digital zine
  • exclusive CPT merchandise 

As of July 2018, CPT has 500 followers on Instagram. If each follower becomes a Station Supporter at $5/month, we could cover 100% of our costs in four months.

We're now six months in and proud to say that CPT is: 
But perhaps the most rewarding accomplishment has been the ability to give 26 DJs (and counting!) a platform where their voices can be heard:
  • Rock Off The Rock allows veteran DJs Jeff Long and DJ Look to dig through four decades of local rock music made in Hawaii
  • Fresh Squeezed amplifies Hawaiʻi’s young music talent with interviews led by Leilow 
  • Mopetown USA empowers two radio newbies, Rawb and Jhune, to curate playlists with their signature wit and humor
  • Kaleidoscopic Visions gives Ryan Joseph Chahanovich (also a radio newbie!) the chance to share his unique collection of psychedelic records
  • SubMantras explores the bass-driven consciousness of champion turntablist DJ Packo
  • Zenbu Zhow connects the dots between Hawaii, Japan and LA with beatmaker Scott Ohtoro
  • ...and more. Plus, new shows coming in August and September!

By navigating the world through sound, we can better understand, define, and be empowered by our local and global identities.

To our listeners, DJs, friends and family — join us in our mission!
