Sam See

Welcome to part 1 of a 4-part program featuring the Life & Times of Sam See.

Four part programs are generally representative of someone whose life story is both well told, and extremely full. This is the case with Sam See.

This program, originally broadcast in November 2015, presented the then 66 year old Sam See. Sam entertains and informs us with a combination of humor and well-developed story telling skills and in doing so, he lays before us his journey into a life of music.  

In doing so we are actually sharing in a form of living history, as both the development of contemporary Australian music and social actions that came out of the 1960’s have had an on-going and major impact on many elements of life in Australia today.  

So it is through Sam’s experiences and observations that we get a unique snapshot of this highly energised period of development in Australia.

In this part of the program we learn how Sam’s music started with violin lessons in school, early music lessons that also involved the piano and cello.

Those skills and that interest in music eventually moved from being a hobby into the professional realm. In telling his story Sam shares his dismay as he begins to discover that it is his keyboard skills that are most sought after, and not his guitar skills, as it is the guitar that was and still is, his passion.

It’s a fascinating journey of life and experiences as seen through the eyes of a Baby Boomer as the 1960’s progressed.
