Listen To Older Voices : Normie Rowe – Part 2

Date:

Share post:

Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced by Rob Greaves for Wesley Connect 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.

This is a special Baby Boomers Generation Edition

In this second part of the Life & Times of seventy year old Baby Boomer Normie Rowe we recall that between April 1965 and June of 1967 Normie had an amazing 15 top 4o hits including four #1’s. His popularity was unparalleled at this time and his fame grew along with the Australian music scene.

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
