Bruddah Iz: Found and lost

Mahalo to HAWAII Today reader Joel Muraoka of Tokyo for his diligence.

Muraoka dropped us a thank you e-mail for posting a truncated YouTube clip of Israel Kamakawiwoole’s “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” playing over Times Square just after 2008 began. Better yet, he found us a full version of the clip.

Sadly, someone (Dick Clark Productions?) had already removed it from YouTube by the time we got the email. But, Joel, thanks all the same.

And for you, and all the rest of the Hawaiian music lovers out there, here’s a classic IZ video we’ve always loved.
