ARIA Hall of Fame inductee Daryl Braithwaite to host awards special on smoothfm
Australian music icon, Daryl Braithwaite, will join smoothfm’s weekend line-up for a one hour ARIA special this Sunday 3 December from 4pm.
Celebrating Braithwaite’s induction into the 31st Annual ARIA Awards Hall of Fame, the one hour ARIA special will see Braithwaite reflect on his music career and how he felt to be inducted for the second time.
Daryl Braithwaite said, “Being inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame is an honour and I was quite chuffed when they told me about it. I am really excited about speaking with the fans on smoothfm about the ARIAs and also a little about I guess, the history of me.”
With a career spanning over 50 years, Braithwaite has become one of Australia’s most successful pop singers having received over 12x Platinum awards for his two albums ‘Edge’ and ‘Rise’, as well as his massive hit single ‘The Horses’ which remains an Australian favourite.
His extraordinary contribution to the music industry was recognised with his induction into the ARIA’s Hall of Fame on Tuesday 28 November, making him one of only a handful of individuals to be inducted twice (once as an individual and once as a group with Sherbet in 1990).
Braithwaite released his latest album, ‘Days Go By’, last Friday, November 24, a collection of his definitive greatest hits including ‘Rise’, ‘One Summer’, ‘As the Days Go By’ and fan favourite ‘The Horses’ as well as four brand new songs exclusive to the album.
Daryl Braithwaite joins a star-studded line-up of smoothfm guest hosts that have included Human Nature, Sir Richard Branson, Take That, James Blunt, Dolly Parton, Barry Gibb, Neil Diamond, Elton John and Olivia Newton-John.
Daryl Braithwaite can be heard on smoothfm 95.3 Sydney, smoothfm 91.5 Melbourne and on smoothfm DAB+ on Sunday 3 December at 4pm
