Listen To Older Voices – The Life & Times of Normie Rowe: Part 4


Share post:

LISTEN TO OLDER VOICES – THE LIFE & TIMES OF NORMIE ROWE: PART 4 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 a special Baby Boomer Generation Program.

This is the final part of the story of Australian music legend, Normie Rowe. Over the previous three programs we have learned much about this Melbourne born boy who came from an unassuming working-class background to carve out an extraordinary career in the music business.

This final part of his story finds Normie continuing to share his very strong feelings about the Vietnam Vets as his conscription had a profound affect upon him.

Norman [Normie] Rowe
But we also learn his music career is anything but over and with a grandchild in his life he is now able to see the world from a different point of view. He continues to share his observations on a range of topics close to his heart and while it would be foolish to say that in four programs we know all about him, we can say we have some insight into not just an amazing entertainer, but an amazing man.

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
