      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.




      This program was originally aired in February 2008 and is being repeated as part of our "Golden Moments" programs, where we feature a program from the past that warrants a second broadcast for the sake of those who may have missed it the first time.

      In part 2 of the story of Colin Jarvis, who was 66 years of age when interviewed in February 2008, we follow his trail of employment, which has consisted of only three different jobs in his entire life. Colin talks of the fantastic work he did at the historic Gulf Station in the neighbouring area of Yarra Glen.

      We also learn of his marriage to Ellie and its enduring nature and how his association with the Working Horse Association led to his ownership, in fact deep friendship, with his Clydesdale horse.
