Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced Rob Greaves for Wesley Mission Victoria and podcast through the Toorak Times.

Listen To Older Voices presents the stories, views and opinions of our older citizens. It is predominantly in a life & times format, with interviewees reflecting upon their lives from earliest memories. An underlying principal of the program is to promote the concept of positive ageing, reinforcing the principle that older people have & continue to make a valuable contribution to both their local & wider community.

In this final program, Bob Bright talks about his life and work after the death of his friend and partner, Laurie Allen, in 2002. Bob is a man who is highly respected in the music industry, so when he talks about his thoughts and feelings on where the Australian music scene is going, we should listen!
Bob also talks about his latest release, a 2013 EP titled “Child of Rock & Roll and how his mother, Elsie, became a major inspiration for a track on the album titled, Great Life (Elsie’s Song). There are so many stories in this final episode that make simply fascinating listening, while providing a historical context to one of Australia’s most loved and respected singers. A great many Australian’s who followed popular Australian music through the 1960’s onward will have been waiting for this story to be told.
