Listen To Older Voices: Angela Rose – Part 2



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 2 of the 3-part program featuring the life and times of Angela Rose. In part 2, Angela continues her story of her religious life and how she balanced it out with the lay world.

However, eventually she leaves the order she was part of and meets Bill Rose, a man whose life is strongly tied to the racing industry, a lifestyle that Angela embraces and one that leads to her passion for horses.

On retiring, she and Bill move to the Yarra Valley and the town of Healesville. Life in retirement is wonderful until disaster strikes, and Bill contracts dementia and Angela is involved in a serious car accident.

I have been with the Toorak Times since April 2012. I work as Senior Editor of the Toorak Times, but I also think of myself as senior contributor. I've been in the Australian music scene as a musician since 1964, and have worked in radio and TV and newspapers (when they were paper ), serious experience in audio editing, and a lot of video editing experience. Currently I'm working as a radio program producer for a national interview program as well as my work with the Toorak Times
