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.
In this the final part of the story of Anita Monk, we share in her story of the trials and tribulations of getting Wrokdown started and keeping it going.
During it’s many years as a TV program, just about everybody who was anybody in the music industry appeared, with Mike Rudd of Spectrum/Murcepts as her first guest and, some of the amazing people who appeared included Johnny Chester, Normie Rowe and Keith Potger from the Seekers.
She shares the reason for the demise of Wrokdown TV and how and why Wrokdown radio came into being.
But there is more to this amazing woman and Anita shares her thoughts on some of the social issues that give her concern. Colin the dog makes his farewell appearance during part 3, and we finish the program with a song written and performed by Anita.
