Holger has been fortunate to have spent most of his life surrounded by music, musicians and fellow music lovers. Discovering and delivering music to fans, radio listeners and readers is an ongoing and endlessly inspiring pursuit. He’s a music lover and record producer who continues to meet and work with new and established artists and many of his heros.
On Saturdays, Holger hosts Saturday Night Blues on CBC Radio.
He also hosts Natch’l Blues, Canada’s longest-running blues program, on CKUA on Saturdays.

a few of us pitched in and brought him to Edmonton for several days in 1970. He played a concert and we recorded a show at CKUA. I took him out to a friend’s for dinner one night. I forgot to bring his false teeth so had to make a trip back to collect them. I still remember how odd it was being on a mission to hunt down this legend’s teeth.
If you have more gratitude then expectations in your day, you’ll have a great day.
Ray Willie Hubbard (Texas singer/songwriter).
Record collecting is no mere hobby, no innocuous leisurely diversion; it is a feverish passion bordering upon dementia… driving those under its influence to irrational, compulsive, fanatical extremes…
Frank Doris, The Absolute Sound.
