Many of the recordings in this subseries are homemade and date from the 1930s-1940s. Besides collecting the commercial recordings of well-known jazz, gospel, and classical artists, Doris was also very interested in Hawaiian music and recorded many of these native songs live using recordings equipment likely kept at her Shangri La estate. She also recorded herself and friends practicing the piano and singing, parties, and recorded and collected radio broadcasts including the broadcast of KGU Radio Artists "The Story of James Buchanan Duke" from 1949. Also included in this subseries are original recordings of the Joe Castro Trio, Kitty White, and Calvin Jackson practicing with his quartet. Of particular interest are the original recordings of the Kahanamoku family and Sol Ho'opi'I who recorded Hawaiian songs for Doris when she wasn't "in residence" at Shangri La.
