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
Listen To Older Voices : Rod Young – 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.

In the final part of the Life and Times of Rod Young, we are regaled with tales as he really packs in the stories which include how he met the love of his life, Helen, and why he moved to West Australia. We learn about how Rod went on to become first a State and later a National Swimming Referee and a member of the Board of the West Australia Swimming Association.

Rod shares with us how he became a member of the WA Cliff Rescue Unit and a controller with the WA SES. A man on the go, Rod obtains his private pilots license and takes up a job in Burma. Believe it or not, the stories of this man life and his adventures don’t stop there!
