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.
For Christmas, we dip into our Vault of Treasured Memories. This is a program recorded back in 1999 and features one of the programs first presenters, Morgan Blackrose. Morgan visited the Golden Wattle club in Melbourne’s outer eastern township of Healesville.
She spoke to a group of Senior Citizens at a Christmas dinner, where she told them Christmas stories. As we listen we are not just entertained but are reminded of the simpler things and simple stories involving Christmas and its traditions, all of which really can reflect the true spirit of Christmas.
