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 principle 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 the third and final program in the Life and Times of Peter Roussos. Born into the Baby Boomer generation, Peter is one of those Boomers that didn’t sit around contemplating his belly and the meaning of the universe.
He threw himself into both playing live music and Hotel management and, through sheer hard work became a very successful chef.
However, in this final part of his story we learn how hotel ownership and management became a huge drain on his time and energy. Peter makes the decision to pull back out of it all in order to spend more time with his wife and family.
Yet his need to work and achieve is too strong and he ends up opening a fabulously successful restaurant in Ormond followed up by a second in St Kilda, both of which become runaway successes.
