A BOOMER HOME COMPANION SAMPLE SHOW (North America’s #1 podcast for Boomers and Beyond )
What happens when your Doctor Retires?
In the War Room, the U.S President (Peter Sellers) is making a phone call to the U.S.S.R President. From Dr. Strangelove 1964. Fast forward to Trump calling Putin
There’s no way that this act could be done today. Our politically correct society would scream “racism.” The truth is that Frank, Dean and Sammy loved each other as brothers in the truest sense of the word. Frank and Dean refused to perform at any casino that refused Sammy a room. Sammy never complained back then and just performed. But then again this was a different time and Sammy, Dean and Frank had class, character and were real men. JOHNNY CARSON hosts this rare live show with the Rat Pack. It’s vintage COOL!
Mel Tormé – Don’t Get Around Much Anymore [outtake] (The Judy Garland Show) with June Allyson
- From the old time radio vault: Fibber Magee and Molly look for Maple Syrup in the 1940’s and Canada’s own The Happy Gang from 1950
Vintage Jack Webb with “Just The Facts Maam”
And then there is Kelly Ann Conway being interviewed on her version of “alternate facts”

Bill Mahr on Donald Trump
As we shiver and shudder our way into 2017, the world around us looks a bit scary. Time to look back at those warm and fuzzy times, because they ain’t comin back Boomers. Roxanne and I are now binge watching Leave It To Beaver episodes to help us remember how GREAT and simple life was back then.
Enough depressing talk, we’ve got some exciting news to share that will make you want to come back again and again to Boomer Public Radio, just so you can feel good about everything again. I’ll be unveiling our NEW program lineup for 2017 and you’ll get a sneak peek into the shows and meet the hosts. Hey, I might even dig up an old LITB episode so you we can channel Ward, June, Wally and the Beave.
Lots of Hot Jazz for a Cool Winter Day. Test your Boomer trivia, and we’ll spotlight some of the great articles from our Boomer Gazette newspaper. So stop shovelling the snow, come in from the cold, put a log on the fire, warm up the hot chocolate and snuggle up to those new speakers you bought for your computer, so you can now listen to us in digital static free hi-def sound. We’ll be waiting for you, so just knock three times, or was that the secret code to Hernandos Hideaway…just testing….. now you just have to click and play…nice and simple just like the old days.
Your humble radio DJ…

” A BOOMER HOME COMPANION ” is a cornucopia of fireside memories, mindful chatter, and music from the jukebox of your life”, host and producer Allan Holender says. “Do you remember the songs you listened to, danced to, kissed to, and cherish”? The program also features candid and insightful interviews with prominent boomers from all walks of life. Allan will be inviting a whole range of interesting folks from around the world to pull up a chair to the big breakfast table and engage in conversation. There’s lots of room for you too!” The show airs LIVE on the BPR Network and is also available later as a podcast.
Holender, born in Edmonton,Alberta was an early pioneer of Internet broadcasting in Canada with over 40 years in the broadcasting industry. Allan has been a producer, nationally syndicated host and co-founder of a terrestrial radio station in the lower mainland of British Columbia. As an early adapter, Allan was at the forefront of developing content rich programming for digital online radio networks in both Canada and the U.S.; Media On Tap, Positive World Radio, Conscious Planet Radio, Peachland Radio and Okanagan Radio . He was one of the first in Canada to broadcast using the internet in 1997.
“I’d like to start a new conversation about active aging in Canada”. We’ll be talking to fellow Boomers from B.C. to Newfoundland about what it means to be getting older, while at the same time, re-inventing, rejuvenating, and re-designing their lives with innovative and creative ideas.””All Boomers have one thing in common”, says Holender. “We all grew up with the radio as our companion in life. We had it by our bedside, in our kitchen, our living room, our rumpus/rec room, our garage, in our cars, at the beach, and at work.” Many Boomers lament that it is difficult nowadays to find a radio station that really cares or caters to their lost generation.
Holender says ” We can fill that gap through NarrowCasting, which allows us to communicate our content to a specific group of Boomers simultaneously over our unique boutique Boomer Public Radio Network”.
Although the program will originate from Canada, the topics and discussions will be general enough to appeal to the 80 million Boomers in the U.S. and around the world.
That’s the beauty of this new media platform, says Holender, you can go LIVE and within seconds people from around the world are listening to you on their internet connection.” I love the idea of bringing back the way radio used to sound with new technology
Holender says this about the future of Boomer Public Radio;”Our ONE big Dream is to be the preferred media choice for connecting the voices of Boomers from around the world where imagination and ideas flourish. Boomer Public Radio can be the #1 source for news, information,stories, conversations, and entertainment for the 80 million baby boomers in the U.S. and 10 million in Canada.
We are also integrating a daily digital newspaper “The Boomer Gazette” into our new media platform, which allows Boomers to have instant access to news, information, and stories all about their generation.”
