ARIA award for Johnny Young

WA musician, television and radio personality Johnny Young is to be inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame on October 27th.  Prior to his well-known stint as host on Young Talent Time, Johnny hosted TVW-7 Perth pop music show Teen Seventeen, recorded with local label Clarion Records and formed Johnny Young & Kompany. He wrote the hit The Real Thing  for Russell Morris among other hits. The State Library is looking for any early Johnny Young recordings, so get into your vinyl collections and see whether you can contribute to the State’s collection. We also collect posters, tickets to concerts, programs and photos so if you have any memorabilia, we would love to hear from you.
