Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced by Rob Greaves for Uniting Melba and podcast through the Toorak Times and Tagg.
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, Carol Cochran regals us with many tales, continuing the stories of the adventures she had with a dance demonstration team travelling through Asia. One such story involves how the entire team bluffed their way through customs in one country without being stopped, in order not to miss their train.
A natural born storyteller, Carol holds nothing back she takes us through a journey of more recent years including her final jobs, which include stories of pizza and pizza shop owners. While her story is far to rich to tell in its entirety, we have been privy to share a glimpse of the life of this dynamic 71 year old.
