Listen To Older Voices : Chris Stockley – Part 1

 Listen To Older Voices : Chris Stockley – Part 1Welcome 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 principle 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.

This is another Baby Boomers special program featuring the story of Chris Stockley presented 4-parts. Born in the UK in 1948, we learn about Chris and his family included his grandparents. Chris became enamored with music at a young age developing a love for Rock ‘n’ Roll but a passion for the Blues. He was 14 when the British new music scene exploded around him.

We follow the story of a somewhat distressed Chris as he was uprooted when his parents migrate to Australia in the early 1960’s, just as it was all “happening” musically around him in the UK. We learn of the misgivings the family had when they arrived in Melbourne and about Chris’ dismay at the music scene he found on his arrival. However, Chris connects with another young man who had a similar taste in music and all of a sudden life isn’t so bad and he sets out to start his first band.

I have been with the Toorak Times since April 2012. I work as Senior Editor of the Toorak Times, but I also think of myself as senior contributor. I've been in the Australian music scene as a musician since 1964, and have worked in radio and TV and newspapers (when they were paper ), serious experience in audio editing, and a lot of video editing experience. Currently I'm working as a radio program producer for a national interview program as well as my work with the Toorak Times
