“Older Voices” is a monthly community broadcast aimed at the older people of Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead. It can be heard on the first Friday of each month from 2 till 4pm.
Older Voices seeks to celebrate the older people of the region, discussing and highlighting issues that affect older residents, along with occasional music and guests.
The show is brought to listeners by The Elders Council of Newcastle upon Tyne, and the broadcast team includes Wendy Mizen, the Grahams and Steve Whitley.
On Fridays when Older Voices is not broadcast, other community shows, including North East Writers, can be heard by listeners instead.
