Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced by Rob Greaves and podcast through the Toorak Times and Tagg

Due to ongoing COVID lockdown we have visited our Vault of Treasured Memories to bring out a Golden Moment Program – where we are presenting a program broadcast in the past, and where we believe it is a story worth sharing again, possibly for the first time with some listeners.

This is Part 1 of a 3-part program featuring the Life & Times story of Angela Rose. Born in 1938, Angela sets the scene of her life’s story by sharing her early memories of what it was like living in East Camberwell, a leafy inner suburb of Melbourne.

As the 3-parts of her story are revealed, you will come to realise, as I did, that this is the story of a remarkable woman.

Angela’s ability to clearly recall events of her early years provides us with a wonderful snapshot of what life was like in that period. For Angela, it was a warm and comfortable middle-class upbringing, while not being one of privilege.

She paints a picture of a graceful period and through her story envelopes us in that grace with her stories and her style of story telling. She developed a lifelong love for horses and she experienced the call of God. What is amazing is, how Angela manages to balance her religious life with a secular one.
