Makes Me Homesick In The Best Way Possible!

I love listening to this podcast because it makes me homesick in the best way possible! Mahalo nui loa for sharing our beautiful Hawai’i Nei with me!

What a treat for the senses!

I love the John Cruz podcast!!! I love the way he talks…that’s how we talked as kids in the yacht harbor…and at school…that’s my heart’s home! I LOVED Time to build a Bridge - great lyrics! And Here Comes the Baby is so visual in the singing of it…and the pidgin references (Good ting we nevah have to go far…)…so awesome. Really speaks to my heart. Because his talent is so amazing, I am grateful to fate that he was able to get his music out to the world. What a crime if no one ever heard it! Amazing!!! And talk about country influence…Ha! So ingrained in Time to Build a Bridge…loved it all! Thank you!
