ALOHA STEVE AND DANNO
Company: WEA/Trafalgar (Aust)
Cat No: (trs-12) - Format: 7" (no sleeve) - Rel: May 1978 - Status: Deleted
This 45 was the Australian single from the overseas version of Radios Appear. It was released at home while the band was in England. The success of this release led to the song Aloha Steve & Danno being the most well recognised song in the band's catalogue.
Sire Records publicist Janis Schacht contacted Jack Lord, star of Hawaii 5-0, to try to arrange a photo shoot with Deniz to promote the song. Seemed like a great idea at the time, until the reply came. It was from an attorney demanding a third of the copyright in the song on behalf of the composer of the Hawaii 5-0 theme music, Mort Stevens. Deniz being a fan of Jack Lord was most disappointed.
