Yeah, G'Day! Episode 19: The First Australian Megastar

Dec 03, 2017, 10:28 AM

Yeah, G’Day! Known around the world for her amazing singing voice and fundraising efforts, Dame Nellie Melba was a huge megastar of her time. But, how did she get such a cool name? When did she become a household name? And, what’s in a name? This week, we try to answer as many of these questions as we can, and we do it in close proximity to where Dame Nellie was born… Which makes us megastars by association! Stay tuned for the most recent and operatic sighting of Harold Holt!

Don’t forget to join our new Facebook group: Yeah, G’Day! Fans.

Thanks to Curtis Fernance for our music, and Teylor Smirl for our cover art.
