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.

In this, the 3rd and final instalment of the Life & Times  of “Mick” Pacholli, Mick regales us with tales of more of his father’s legitimate and semi-legitimate enterprises.

 

We learn how the economic downturn in the 1980’s finally bought the iconic street paper, the Toorak Times to its end.

Among all the turmoil of his life, Mick turns to, of all things, lawn bowls and does very, very well.

Then after the death of his father Mick purchases the rights to the name “The Toorak Times” and begins to build it into one of Australia’s premier on-line multimedia newspapers, using the philosophy of ‘Citizen Journalism’.

This is one one of the most fascinating and untold stories of a man with a vision for an ‘alternative” on-line paper, who is a contributor to his community in so many ways.

Tune in, be educated, be amazed, be entertained and be prepared for the unexpected.
