Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced 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.
This is the fourth and final part of the Life and Times of Sam See. Born in 1949 Sam was well educated and quickly developed an analytic mind that was very much balanced with a love for and a talent for playing music. Over the years he has honed his skills as a guitarist, keyboard player, vocalist and songwriter. His story is both entertaining and educative as he shares his many experiences in the Australian and overseas music scenes. In this, the final part of his story, Sam reflects on his career and brings us up to date with his latest activities and it reminds us, that his memories are sharp, and his music in great demand.
Sam is an accomplished songwriter, and among his successes is having written the track “Reasons”, which John Farnham recorded and turned into a massive hit. But his career continues today, and he has an ongoing collaboration with his close friend and well known vocalist and guitarist – Glyn Mason, in the form of their duo, The Pardoners.
