Email #1: As I recall, Samuel Omar was a writer in the 50's in Hawaii. Bob
Email #2: Ceck out the richard kauhi quartet and the kalima brothers. they are the guys we got it from in the50's. ALOHA=
So I checked out both acts mentioned above and there's not a whole lot about them that I can find. There are some recordings available and I imagine that one could research the songs on these recordings to see of SFO was the writer of any of them.
Now I just noticed something interesting: the initials I wrote above for Samuel F. Omar (SFO) happens to be the airport designation for San Fransisco Internation Airport. Hmmm...
