Welcome to the Nostalgic Ramber

Hans Jeff Borger is heard on WRGE 97.9 FM in Ocala, FL featuring Christian programming.

"The Nostalgic Rambler" radio show previously heard on Gene Martin & Friends has been suspended due to my commitments at WRGE.

Why a blog? I wrote a book "The Little Grownup: a nostalgic Michigan boyhood" which should appeal to most baby boomers. A mass market book? Well, not yet...but the potential is there! (Be sure to buy it at "finer on line bookstores" everywhere!)

The comments presented in "The Nostalgic Rambler" probably won't be of interest to the masses...anymore. If grandma and grandpa and their friends were still alive, then it would be a different story.

I live in the past. My time warp is a comfortable cocoon even if it sometimes drives my wife crazy. The music of the 1940s and 50s, the stars of those days were big stuff in their day, but are now almost forgotten. Oddly enough, I was born in '64 so those iconic years were for the most part over by that time.

Through "The Nostalgic Rambler" I maybe can help share my love and knowledge for those times and things...all at one time important pieces of Americana but now a bit faded in memory.

The woman who did the blog about cooking all of Julia Childs' French Cuisine Cookbook in a year got a sweet movie deal out of her blog experience. I wouldn't mind that but would be happy to know that you are reading this....and maybe enjoying my time warp, too.

Christmas Sounds of Ray Conniff on the air again

The Nostalgic Rambler has been quite busy lately. I've been helping to set up a Christian radio station coming soon to my city. It is an exciting project as a music library is being assembled and programs are being recorded. You can be assured that since the project has my input, there will be plenty of songs from the artists featured here on this blog.

Anyhow due to this project there just isn't enough time for too many projects like this blog, so if posts are a little scarce you know why.... I imagine there is enough stuff on here to keep you entertained. 

                                            Gotta love this lady's Santa outfit.

Radio stations once again are playing Christmas music which as usual they are calling "holiday" music. This "holiday" music, which is really "Christmas" music (!) brings a lot of our favorite recording artists out of the woodwork.
This morning our clock radio woke us up to Ray Conniff's "12 Days of Christmas."  It is great to listen to Ray Conniff anytime of the year but especially at Christmas. Someone posted an entire Conniff Christmas album here so click  and enjoy........ Guaranteed to put you in a Christmas (holiday) mood!
Merry CHRISTmas everybody.........
