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 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.

In this, the 4th and final part of the Life and Times of Baby Boomer, Frank Howson, Frank talks at some length about his latest project, “Dream Lover – The Bobby Darin Story” which he wrote and produced and has had rave reviews in its Sydney opening season. In talking about this show, Frank also talks about his first-hand experiences with Bobby Darin’s family.

However in this final part of his story, Frank also takes time out from stories involving his professional and on-going career, to share his thoughts and feelings on a range of issues that are of concern to him, not the least being, his concern for the degradation of the environment.
