Elvis Presley comes to Hawaii in 1957 is the first video in The Ron Jacobs Story Series which is all about the life and times of Radio Legend Ron Whodaguy Jacobs. This is a non-profit educational video. R J is best known as program director and co-creator of 93 KHJ Boss Radio in Los Angeles 1965-69. Jacobs was a creative genius who was born, raised and lived most of his life in beautiful Hawaii where he received a lifetime achievement award. This Elvis story was Ron's favorite and most exciting and I believe may also be his partner at the time, Tom Moffatt's favorite also. I met Ron when he called me after seeing my video, "Growing up with the Boss Jocks, A Tribute to 93 KHJ Boss Radio in Los Angeles". That began with a phone call that lasted several hours filled with stories which turned into many phone calls which turned into the beginning of our friendship. Jacobs has so many interesting stories, one video could not hold them all. When I began work on this first video, I was collaborating with Ron. Sadly, he passed away on March 8, 2016. That was a very sad day. This is for you R J. I hope you and Tom like it. I would say RIP but I know you are busy visiting with Elvis and the Colonel and coming up with creative Ideas you want to talk to God about. Mahalo & Aloha my friend.
