Australia : A new digital radio station Stardust was born today at 4 pm

A new digital radio station, called Stardust, was born today at 4pm.

Austereo has launched another national digital radio station called Stardust, featuring easy listening 'timeless classics.'  Using the name made famous in Hoagy Carmichael's song, the station launched after a couple of weeks of bird sounds (see our previous story). 

The station opened with the song Stardust, followed by Frank Sinatra's New York New York. Other artists played in the first hour were Dean Martin, Harry Connick Junior, Bobby Darin and Elvis Presley.

The first station jingle played is right out of the 1950s. Listen here.
