Dannii Minogue joins LiSTNR to champion 90s music programming
Australian pop export Dannii Minogue has signed on with Southern Cross Austereo’s (SCA) LiSTNR to host a new podcast series and radio show celebrating the best music of the 90s.
Minogue, who released her debut album Love and Kisses in 1990, will now host LiSTNR’s Oldskool 90s Hits station, playing all of the decade’s greatest hits and reminiscing on her own experiences throughout the era.
The successful singer and actor will also champion an exclusive podcast series on the platform dubbed The 90s with Dannii Minogue, with the first five episodes of the series available to listen to now on the plaftorm.
The podcast sees Minogue take a trip back through each year to relive the most iconic aspects of the era, delving into the music, film, fashion and everything else that helped define the decade across 10 episodes.
Minogue expressed her elation towards hosting both programs for LiSTNR and highlighted the nostalgic value of her new podcast.
“I was a teenager in the ’90s and released my first album in 1990,” Minogue said.
“I was on Home & Away, which had a huge following in the UK, and I soon found myself living in London during one of the most exciting times in music and pop culture. I sported the skunk streak, mom jeans and chokers and loved every minute of it!
“Hosting iconic TV shows like The Big Breakfast and Top of the Pops alongside making music gave me a front row seat to an era I can’t wait to share more about with fans on a dedicated station of Oldskool 90s Hits and with a podcast series that will dive deep into each year of the best decade ever.”
SCA’s head of music Mickey Maher welcomed Minogue to LiSTNR and underscored her own cultural credentials as the perfect host for both programs.
“What an absolute treat to have a performer like Dannii Minogue front these two projects for us,” Maher said.
“Very few people have enjoyed the success, longevity, and fan loyalty Dannii has, and we are so thrilled to welcome her to the LiSTNR family and give our audiences the chance to immerse themselves in such a seminal era with someone who was at the forefront of it.”
