When one opportunity ends, another begins.
For Kelowna resident Allan Holender, opportunity came in the form of radio.
Holender developed cataracts at seven, which slowly took his sight, but not his voice.
In 1951, at 10, Holender’s father built him his own radio which started his passion. Born and raised in Edmonton and now retired in the Okanagan, Holender spends his days in his cozy home studio, with a radio show he created.
“I thought ‘what are the things I’m going to be limited to when I go blind?’ My voice changed at 13 and I developed this deep, radio voice, and I told my dad ‘I think I could go into radio.’ Every night I used to go to bed with the radio on,” he said.

Their official soft launch will be Saturday Feb. 11th starting with a LIVE broadcast at 9:00 a.m. pacific, hosted by Allan Holender .
All shows on the network will be archived in a podcast library and available at: www.boomerpublicradio.com
