listen to older voices: frank howson – part 1
Frank Howson Part 1

Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced by 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.

This is Part 1 of a 4-part series featuring Baby Boomer Frank Howson. Born in 1952 as a 65 year old, Frank is a person who has totally immersed himself in multi-faceted arts from an early age and is still, today, writing lyrics, writing storylines and directing live and filmed performances.

In part 1 Frank introduces himself and his family. Through the stories of his early life we gain a good understanding how his early introduction to music and arts would heavily influence the rest of his life. Franks on-going career includes an incredibly successful one in music, acting, screenwriting, playwriting, producing and directing, in both live performances and in films and, in both Australia and Hollywood.
