Listen To Older Voices: Hannah Sky – Part 2

Share post:

Listen To Older Voices: Hannah Sky – 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 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 part 2 of a 3-part program featuring the Life & Times of Hannah Sky who was the first producer of the Listen To Older Voices program. We learn that Hannah was a teacher at the last “strap school” in the state of Victoria where she took a stand against the practice. It would not be the last stand she would take on behalf of people who were underrepresented or could not speak for themselves

In this program Hannah continues to talk about her early life with stories of what it was like in a boarding school but, we also learn about Hannah’s work when she grew up, work largely in community development and how she was a key player in the development of the Melba Community program, where the Listen To Older Voices would be born some 19 years ago.

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
