I have been with the Toorak Times since April 2012. I worked as Senior Editor of the Toorak Times for 10 years before retiring in 2012. I continue now as an occasional feature writer. 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. I retired from paid radio work in 2022 and took up a position in the Education Centre at Puffing Billy

Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced Rob Greaves for Wesley Mission Victoria and podcast through the Toorak Times.

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.

Born in Victoria in 1947, Mick epitomises those born into what we now call the Baby Boomer Generation. Well educated and with excellent communication skills along with a preparedness to tackle life head and seeking a life and experiences so totally dissimilar to previous generations, Mick takes us on a well constructed journey through his life.

We join him on his clearly recalled life, from his earliest recollected memories though to that of a child and onto that of a young man and his life in the mid-1960’s. We learn how the development of his music career came about and what he had to do to keep himself alive while trying to develop his passion for music into a career. In fact his career takes off like a rocket and one of the groups he is part of, the Moods, gets a job supporting the Rolling Stones on their second tour in Australia.
