Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum is the benchmark for music journalists in Australia. Via his ability to recognise a hit and through his television show Countdown Molly put Abba, Blondie and Madonna on the world map.
After Abba’s first international success in Australia, the first edition of the Rolling Stone music encyclopaedia listed Abba as “an Australian act”.
Molly, it is time to “do yourself a favour”. Get well Molly from your mates at Noise11.com.
