Cultural education will be the primary focus of our broadcast programming. Virtually all social issues in Hawai‘i are heavily influenced or affected by the unique multiculturalism of this state. We plan to use traditional as well as contemporary music of Hawai'i's major ethnic groups including (but certainly not limited to) Japanese, Filipino, Chinese, and Hawaiian to further the community's understanding of the culture, history, and social perspectives of each of these groups. Education through music will also extend to regular broadcasts of classical, jazz, and modern classic (e.g. "Big Band") music hosted by experts in those areas. We anticipate our musical programming (music plus knowledgeable analyses and interpretations, including lectures and other oral presentations illustrated or punctuated by musical examples) to comprise approximately 80% of broadcast time.

Of the remaining 20%, more than half of the broadcast time will include actual instructional material, i.e. lessons in Hawaiian language, health and wellness information for senior citizens, Hawaiian history, etc. The remainder of the broadcast schedule (8%) will be filled by news and public service announcements, both of which may be considered educational.

Incidentally, mana'o is a Hawaiian word which means thought, idea, opinion, theory, meaning, mind; to think, suppose, meditate, deem, consider. It is one of many non-English words used frequently in Hawai'i, often in the phrase sharing mana'o, or the exchange of thoughts, feelings, and expertise. Pre-contact Hawaiians had no written language; knowledge was passed through the oral tradition of sharing mana‘o. We chose the name Mana'o Radio because we see this station as a modern extension of this tradition; an opportunity to educate the community through multicultural sharing.

In other words…MAUI ECLECTIC!
