I have been with the Toorak Times since April 2012. I worked as Senior Editor of the Toorak Times until 2023, when I retired. I now work as a special features contributor for both the Toorak Times and Tagg. 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 actually printed on paper) as well as working in the film industry, as the Film Unit manager on Homicide for several years. I also have extensive experience in audio production and editing.

Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced by Rob Greaves and podcast through the Toorak Times and Tagg” style=”3d” color=”orange”][/vc_cta][/vc_column][/vc_row]This is the second and final part of the story of Clem Gracie.

In Part 2 of the remarkable story of Clem Gracie, we start with Clem’s days in the army and we find out why they were days of misery! We are introduced to Margaret, Clem’s wife, and, we learn how they met, literally over a cup of coffee.

Having talked about his love of music and talent in piano playing in Part 1, Clem continues the story of the development of his music, some of which is featured during this program.

This is a fantastic story and the program was runner up to Radio National ABC in 2006 for the OPSO Media Awards in the category for reporting Positive Ageing of over 50’s. Given the resources of Radio National, LTOV was very pleased with this recognition and to come second to the ABC given the programs limited resources was rewarding.
