This is Part 1 of a 3-part Life and Times story of Robyn Youlten.



Robyn turned out to be a most wonderful woman with some most wonderful stories. Born in Brunswick Victoria in 1955, Robyn is a Baby Boomer and it would be quite impossible to sum up her story in a few lines.

Robyn takes us on a wonderful journey through her life that commences from her earliest memories.

Born into a loving family, Robyn was given the type of parental guidance that helped set her up for life and in fact also contributed to her love for her parents.

Being a “Smart Little Bunny (her words) she explains how this actually made her life more difficult than she would have liked. Growing up in the “Swinging 60’s” she found herself immersed in a new way of thinking, new music and new ideas.

Once you listen to part 1 of her story, you will not want to miss the remainder over the following 2-parts.

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
