Jelly's Music

Jelly's Music, also known as Jelly's Original, sells used CDs and vinyl, as well as musical instruments and comics. The proprietor is Sheriff Norm, who made a name for himself in the 90's with his radio station, Radio Free Hawaii.

Notes


Jelly's proprietor is none other than "Sheriff" Norm Winter, the former owner and operator of the Honolulu radio station Radio Free Hawaii, which Rolling Stone magazine ranked as among the top 5 in the entire nation. Its weekly rotation was based solely on a lively weekly poll by listeners resulting in segues from the Kikaida theme to AC/DC, jazz classics, and Reel Big Fish-- and the DJs were notorious for playing any request, ranging from insiders' indie rock to the Cookie Monster Song from Sesame Street. The station was among the first to give ska bands Reel Big Fish and Dance Hall Crashers airtime in 1991 before they became famous. Radio Free went off the air in 1994, returned a year later, only to go off again in 1995. When asked, Norm replied that he plans to bring back Radio Free some day. We hope so. For now, come down and support his cause at Jelly's.

This store is sometimes called "Jelly's Original" because Winter sold some of his other Jelly's locations to the mainland operator of Cheapo's music, which had also bought the rights to the name. The issue was resolved amicably with the company renaming its acquisitions under the Cheapo's label, and Winter retaining his original Aiea location
