 Listen To Older Voices : The Life And Times Of Mick Elliott – 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.

We present another Baby Boomers special program this one featuring the story of Mick Elliott presented 3-parts. This is the first part of a 3-part program featuring the Life and Times of Mick Elliott. Mick was another Baby Boomer who was bitten by the “music bug” at a young age and who went on to make a successful career as a professional musician. Over the three parts to his story we will follow Mick’s story from his early years. His first band that was formed in 1964 and we listen and learn how over the years he became part of some iconic groups such as Syd Rumpo, Southern Cross, the Wild beaver Band, Stars and many more.
We will also hear the stories of how he and his guitar came to support such music legends as J.J. Cale and Bo Diddley. Yet for all his success Mick is an unassuming Aussie who never shirked from working hard in jobs outside the music industry when times demanded and, he is not just admired by audiences for his guitar work, but by his peers.

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
