Michael Gudinski tribute station launches on iHeartRadio Australia
The music which Michael Gudinski championed throughout his illustrious career is currently playing on a pop-up station on Australian Radio Network’s (ARN) iHeartRadio Australia.
Gudinski died earlier this week sending shockwaves through the industry, with many using this week to remember his larger-than-life personality, achievements, affection for Australian music, and enduring legacy.
One of those people is iHeartRadio Australia’s content director, Brett ‘Nozz’ Nossiter who said everyone who knew Gudinski has a story to tell.
“Michael Gudinski was a giant of the music industry, a larger-than-life personality and an inspiration to us all. Many of us at ARN had a close working and personal relationship with the great man – and everyone has classic anecdote to share about their time with MG,” he said.
Nozz said the digital music platform wanted to remember and pay tribute to the great man.
“When we heard the news about his passing, we immediately wanted to pay tribute to him and the pop up iHeartRadio station is part of how we are remembering his incredible contribution to music, touring, and support for Australian artists,” he said.
“On a personal level, MG was a huge reason why I chose a career in music media and the station is my way to say ‘Thank you for the music, your legacy will live on for a long time to come.’ Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to Sue, Matt, and Kate and the whole Mushroom family.”
