    Default Listen To Older Voices: Keith Thomas - A Golden Moment Program

    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.


    Originally aired in April of 2003, this is a program we have pulled from our vault of Treasured Memories. The story of Keith Thomas is presented by Jaycee Hall and when she spoke with Keith he was 77 years old. Yet his age didn’t stop Keith declaring that he was “as fit as a trout”! As Keith walks us through his life we find his stories are filled with local stories of a life and a style of living that is now long past.

    Many listeners will be aware of how tough life was for many Australians during the Great Depression years, and Keith, who was born in 1926, recalls clearly the struggle his family had. Apprenticed into an industry now long dead, Keith’s story is very much one of living history.
