Listen To Older Voices : David Pepperell – Part 2 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 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 a Golden Moments Repeat program, where we have delved into our vault of treasured programs to bring you a story we believe is worth repeating

Welcome to the second of a 3-part program on the Life and Times of Baby Boomer, David Pepperell. Born in 1945 and brought up in a family lifestyle that he felt wasn’t for him, David quickly embraced the cultural changes of the 1960’s, becoming involved in singing in a band and immersing himself into music and culture whilst diving headfirst into the social changes which were washing over Australia.

David also worked as an “underground” journalist as well as a rock journalist and in doing so had a first hand experience in the developing Melbourne pub-rock scene and all the side issues that went along with it. David has a very easy-going listening style and a sense of humour to go with it. He is very engaging and in this program we continue to share in his adventures and certainly share in his experiences of a period now some 50 years in our past, a period that has fast becoming part of our history.
