Saturday Mornings, 8:00- 9:00 & Saturday Evenings, 11:00- 12:00
Boomertown is growing – growing in popularity and growing in length. The program now begins shortly after 8:00 every Saturday morning, with a repeat at 11pm. This is the program for Baby Boomers, the generation that is generally defined as those who were born between 1946 and 1964. Our own Roger Currie (left) co-hosts the show with Barry Bowman, another prairie broadcaster now living in Victoria. Roger and Barry share memories of the music, the movies, and the black and white TV shows that Boomers first encountered in their teens. Boomertown also includes regular features like ‘Stump the News Guy’ (that would be Roger), and ‘magic movie memories’. If you miss hearing it Saturday morning, you can hear the Podcast version of it anytime.

Malts, Mustangs & Memories
Sundays at 12 – 2 pm
You don’t need to be sitting in a fastback Mustang, or sipping on a chocolate malt to feel like you are back in time. Start off your week, with great memories every Sunday at noon with co-hosts Chadd Cawson and Tom Dercola. When the clock strikes 12, for two hours, we turn it back, to all your favorites, The Doo-Wop of the 50’s like The Platters, The Diamonds, and The Crew-Cuts. The 60’s, those old-time pioneers of rock and roll like Chuck Berry, Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, and so many more. We even dip into the seventies to keep you feeling that Saturday Night Fever on a Sunday afternoon, and make you want to do the hustle, and the best of the adult contemporary eighties. And let’s not forget the soulful sound of Motown to soothe yours, with artists like Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross and The Temptations.
We keep you moving, and grooving, slow dancing, and reminiscing for two hours. We not only play great music but we provide some facts on those songs and where they stood on the charts. We give you the scoop on what’s going on in your community and the chance to win contests for those special community events.

The Memory Show
Sundays at 2 – 4 pm
‘Get Out Those Old Records’, is not just our opening theme song but that’s what we do. We dig out those old 78’s, and even the wartime V-discs to play the big bands, like Artie Shaw, Count Basie, Glenn Miller. We will have you doing the 1 O’clock jump just after 2, and make you feel like you are traveling back in time on the A-Train.
We cover all the classic crooners like Frank, and Nat and Perry and all the ladies you adore like Jo, The Andrew Sisters and Ella. We play some of the best music ever recorded, and, don’t forget our contests for some great entertainment options.
Tune in the rapport of Tom and Chadd every Sunday afternoon as they play the music that you grew up on or wish you did. Either way, they will make you fall in love with past eras for the first time or all over again.
