Timeless Voyager Series

From 1987 through 1994 Timeless Voyager Radio was broadcast over 200+ radio stations world-wide in most top 50 radio markets in the US, Canada, and Short-Wave world-wide. Bruce Stephen Holms, the Timeless Voyager host started the radio program on KCSB 91.9 in Santa Barbara, CA in the fall of 1987.

It consisted of interviews with leading edge speakers in the fields of UFOs, Extraterrestial encounters, Alternative and Natural Health modalities, Channeling, Psychic Phenomena, Cryptozoology (Bigfoot/Sasquatch), Religio-Political, and Seers who explain The quest for Enlightenment.

What made Timeless Voyager Radio different was the program was broadcast at 9 am Monday morning “drive time” instead of the usual late night hours that was reserved for “para-normal” programs. It was launched from a college radio station in 1987 and by 1990 Timeless Voyager Radio was enjoyed by listeners of commercial radio stations in the US and in most parts of the world over short wave radio until it was retired from live broadcasting in late 1994 .
