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.

Mick shares why he is pessimistic about where this once great Australian cultural industry is at now. His passion for music and his incredible talent has seen him work alongside the very best of Australian talent and while his music making is backing off, it has by no means stopped.

Mick is also a passenger on spaceship Earth and holds very strong views on the state of this planet in regard to ecological issues and his analytical ability helps shape the views he shares with us. Like us all, Mick has experienced his share of up’s and downs, but it is crystal clear that Mick sees all his life as a terrific journey, that is far from over!
