Here’s an interview with (allow me to name-drop here) Brad Goreski, my girlfriend MaryAnne’s nephew. Brad recently became one of the hosts of TV’s Fashion Police bringing his Canadian sensibility (he grew up in Port Perry) and strong stylist credentials to the show. He recently did an interview with the Los Angeles Times. Here’s the link: http://www.latimes.com/fashion/la-ig-brad-goreski-interview-20150208-story.html#page=1

There’s an old song from 1927, “I’ve danced with a man who’s danced with a girl who’s danced with The Prince of Wales”? I can make a similar claim, although several degrees removed from The Prince of Wales. My friend MaryAnne’s nephew is Brad Goreski, a stylist-to-the-stars and TV personality who is joining The Fashion Police beginning January 11th. Brad grew up in Port Perry, Ontario and still has that small-town charm and Canadian sensibility, except when it comes to his fashion sense where he’s over-the-top.

As an early Baby Boomer, born in 1947, it seems to me that as we approach our retirement years, Boomers have gone from being the energy driving our nation to slowly becoming invisible. We risk losing our identity as society remains stubbornly youth-centric. And the irony is that Gen Xers and Ys are not the majority; we are. BOOMERBROADcast is my platform for being the voice of Baby Boomers, women in particular. We've generated a lot of changes over the decades but there's still a long way to go. After a 40-year career in the corporate world, I've taken up expressing the observations and concerns of our generation. Instead of pounding the pavement in my bellbottoms with a cardboard sign, I'm pounding my laptop (I learned to type on a manual typewriter and old habits die hard). If you have issues or concerns you would like voiced or have comments on what I've voiced, I'd love to hear from you. We started breaking the rules in the sixties and now that we're in our sixties it's no time to become complacent. Hope you'll stay tuned and if you like BOOMERBROADcast, share it with your friends.
