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.

The story of Baby Boomer Pat Wilson is told over 4-parts. It is the story of a woman that grew up in a working class family, but one where her parents highly valued both education and music. In the first part of her story we are introduced to her parents and we gain an understanding of how and why they had such a positive influence upon her.

We also gain an understanding of why this woman had such a passion for music, which would profoundly influence her future in many ways. However it would be a mistake to think music was the limit of her passions yet it was this love of music would lead her to eventually meet and marry one of Australia’s most decorated musicians – Ross Wilson.

Ross & Pat Wilson

An avid reader and an avid follower of social issues these loves would also translate into concrete skills and beliefs later in her life. Now her stories are not just part of a rich story of the development of Australian music through the 1960’s and ‘70’s, but also reminds us of the excitement and pace of change that was driven by this Baby Boomer Generation.
