Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced by Rob Greaves for Wesley Mission Victoria and podcast through the Toorak Times.
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 principal 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.
This is Part 2 of the Life & Times of Baby Boomer – Frank Howson. We follow on from Part 1 where he was taken under the wing of by the legendary DJ Stan ‘the man” Rofe while working at 3UZ. We learn how this led to him entering a recording studio and recording a single that looked destined to be a hit, except professional jealousy from a well known artist interfered in the process much to Frank’s dismay.
Undaunted, Frank then moves into live theatre performance and gaines roles in many large and successful productions including Jesus Christ Superstar, and it is here where Frank tells a story of how he almost accidentally hung Jon English during a performance. The stories flow freely and Frank oozes entertainment while informing and educating us in a very easy going style of presentation.
