Share:

 listen to older voices : joy pagalos – part 1 Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program 
produced by Rob Greaves for Wesley Mission Victoria 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 the first part of a 3-part program featuring Joy Pagalos. 
Joy was born in 1942 in Willesden, a suburb just north-west of London. She takes us on a journey through her early years and while her memories of the war years are not so good due to her being so young, her memories of her parents and school years, which she does not fondly recall, are very vivid.
Her first job is working in the office of a quantity surveyor and life was great until a breakdown until a breakdown in the relationship between her father and his mother saw the whole family move to Australia where her father took up a job in Adelaide, a job with the government that he had applied for while still in England and a job he kept until his retirement.
