INTERVIEW: Jelly's Sheriff Norm Winter Talks About Radio Free Hawaii
INTERVIEW: Jelly's Sheriff Norm Winter Talks About Radio Free Hawaii
I met with Norm Winter on an evening in February 2014 several months after I had recorded a previous conversation of ours. I should say that that conversation-which took place at the Aloha Lounge sometime in the Spring of 2013 during one of Jah Gumby's Rub-A-Dub all-vinyl reggae sessions, and which gave us an overview of how Jelly's came to be (and why other records stores in Hawaii failed to stay in business)-I recorded without his knowledge. I've since apologized to Norm about publishing our pseudo-interview without his prior permission, and he's since forgiven me.
If you don't know Norm, you might think he's an irritable guy. But take a moment to get to know him and you'll discover he's extremely knowledgeable about music, is critical of the world around us (that's a good thing), a no-bullshit no-filter kind of dude who's passionate about what he's doing and likes having a good time while cracking a few jokes.

In his defense, there's a lot wrong with this world-the music industry, the radio industry-to gripe about. Funny thing is (and it's probably because of that conversation I published last year) I think he likes to heckle me whenever he gets a chance. It's hilarious.
We sat down at a late-night restaurant in Kaimuki for the following Norm-approved interview. Norm is something of a regular here, bringing his laptop along to work on his writing (he's currently putting together a few books, both fiction and non-fiction). When I ordered a Sapporo, the waitress didn't card me. I remarked: "I guess they didn't need to card me". Norm swiftly replied with a slight smirk: "Well, you look suspicious."
It's taken me months to finish transcribing this interview, and I've seen Norm many times since February. Each time he's asked me, "How's that thing going? and I'll tell him-somewhat reluctantly since it's taken so long to complete-"It's coming along, it's almost there". Norm usually says something snappy: "I guess I'll know when it's published cause it'll hit me like the last one did."
Well, here it is Norm.
Before we get into it, I want readers to know that Norm is the music buyer for Jelly's. In other words, he is solely responsible for bringing in all those used and new vinyl records that fill the racks at both Jelly's locations. Norm is also responsible for the affordable price tags and-better yet-the crates and crates of $1 records at Jelly's monthly sidewalk sale.
Without Jelly's-without Norm-Oahu wouldn't have such easy access to an ever-changing selection of affordable vinyl that will surprise you almost every time you walk through the doors. Because of Norm, I'm able to dig up new gems to spin every month at Soul Time In Hawaii (which happens every last Thursday across the street at Bevy Bar). It's Norm who keeps Honolulu's digging habit satiated, keeps collectors on our toes, and keeps us wondering throughout the day (every day) what might possibly be passing through his hands at this moment.
Thank you Norm for helping make Jelly's the institution that it is.
And, as you'll find out, Norm is also responsible for another local albeit now-defunct institution.

Norm Winter once changed the way we listened to radio. It was called Radio Free Hawaii, and it revolutionized the airwaves by putting listeners in charge with a ballot-counting system that determined what DJs could play on the radio. Without Norm, scores of people in Hawaii wouldn't had enjoyed the musically rich, community-centered, boundary-pushing station that was Radio Free Hawaii KDEO 102.7FM.

Also in the early 80s the station used a voting system to determine its top 30 hits, and I think it may have been run by Norm Winter for a while, who later went on to radio fame by starting Radio Free Hawaii in 1991. Best to ask Norm about this. 850 KHLO Hilo A top 40 station for most of the 70s in the Hilo area.
...
They played country on that station until 1991 when Norm Winter and his company subleased the station and ran Radio Free Hawaii on it from 1991-94 and then again from 1995-97.
...
Their most memorable formats have been talk radio and a one time stint as a top 40 station in the mid 1980s... During this short span of time it was run by Norm Winter in a Radio Free Hawaii-like fashion.

Remember getting a raised eyebrow from Norm when I special ordered a David Axelrod album, think it was that one released on Mo'Wax… anyway, felt a sense of accomplishment in getting a strange look from Norm.
