DJ Nocturna

For more than 15 years, DJ Nocturna has been coming to KTUH every Saturday night to host her show “A Feast of Friends,” but that will not happen anymore. 

Starting on January 25, DJ Nocturna will be doing a two-hour show on Modsnap Radio every Saturday. The show will be streaming on modsnapradio.com and will be from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Hawai'i time. She also has a website where she posts her podcasts (djnocturna.com). 

DJ Nocturna hosted her last show on KTUH on December 28, 2019. The room was packed with her friends, family members and her supporters who came in to surprise her. 

DJ Nocturna plays music such as new wave, dark '80s, deathrock, goth and industrial. She started her career in radio broadcasting more than 18 years ago on KPRG 89.3 FM Public Radio Guam. She later joined the University of Hawai'i at Manoa's radio station KTUH 90.1 FM, where she hosted her weekly show "Feast of Friends" every Saturday night from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

"I have always appreciated KTUH for the kind of diversity of the station,” DJ Nocturna said. “We have different types of music, different types of DJs. I have met so many kinds of DJs who have come and gone. I have made so many good friends."

DJ Nocturna revealed that being a DJ is a source of learning new things. "I just got exposed to different types of music,” she said. “It's always a learning experience. You learn a lot. I think if I didn't do this show I don't know if I would be able to collect so many albums."

Shorty after DJ Nocturna notified the station about her exit, she received an offer from Modsnap Radio, a radio station based on San Antonio, Texas. Starting from January 25, 2020, she will be doing two hour-long show there every Saturday afternoon from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. HST. She will not be moving to San Antonio, but will be doing the show remotely from home.
