In this episode, I talk with my very first guest on the podcast, Moana Wolfgramm from the 80s band The Jets. I first met Moana when we were on tour together in 1986. She was just 12 years old, traveling around the country in a tour bus with her seven siblings. The Jets were on their first world tour which had started in 1985 after the release of their platinum-selling record on MCA "The Jets." From 1985 to 1990 the band accumulated eight top 10 singles. "Crush On You" — which peaked at number three in July of 1986, probably bumped our song off the charts!
You'll hear what being in a band with your seven siblings is like, and how losing a gig and being stranded in Minneapolis led to the group landing a record deal. In the early 90s, The Jets fell off the charts. It was then that Moana re-discovered herself through the love of family and simple living in Hawaii, and discovered what success means to her.
