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 second of three programs featuring the Life & Times of 75 year old Joy Pagalos and in the program Joy reflects on her life in Adelaide and how she and her family travelled by the Arcadia to Australia and how this led to meeting her husband to be Anthony Pagalos. After Anthony’s job in Adelaide ended, he and Joy came to Melbourne in search of a job and a better life.
Joy shares many great stories including how she came to gain a job with the Cystic Fibrosis Association, from its very early beginnings, and how she helped build it up into a well functioning organisation. This is just part of her wonderful story and I should mention, any strange noises you hear during the program are courtesy of Joy’s dog Hugo, who fell asleep during our talk and snored his way through our time together.
