Molly Meldrum featured in Australian Legends stamp series!
‘Mastered by Molly’ host and all-round Aussie icon Ian “Molly” Meldrum has been honored by Australia Post with his very own stamp!
Each person or group has been chosen for their influence and impact on music in Australia, and for taking Australian music to the world stage.
Molly Meldrum is not only a music legend in his own right, he has of course played an integral role in launching the careers of countless Aussie acts – even some of those featured alongside him in the Legends campaign!
“The Australian musicians honoured on these stamps have world-wide respect from the industry so it’s great to see Australia Post recognising their impact and success,” said Meldrum.
“Not only have these artists taken Australian music to the world, but they have influenced generations of current Australian acts and pioneered pathways to international success.
“I’m excited to have been able to go along for the ride as their careers have gone from strength to strength,” he revealed.
The ‘2013 Australia Post Australian Legends’ will be honoured at official Australia Day events staged in all capital cities in the lead up to January 26, with the first taking place in Adelaide today. Each Legend will also be presented with a 24-carat gold replica of their stamp.
Congratulations to Molly and all the other recipients! Check out the full list below…
