What does get on the blower mean?

the telephone, for which the blower is a slang term, especially in the United Kingdom. The slang came from the Royal Naval ships prior to telephones. Communication was direct, through a voice pipe. The pipe had a whistle inserted at each end.

Is there a difference between a blower and a supercharger?

We'll use the terms supercharger and blower interchangeably. The centrifugal supercharger is very similar to a turbocharger, except the centrifugal supercharger is driven by a belt off the engine, while the turbocharger is driven by the force of the exhaust gases.
