MTV and ARN’s iHeartRadio Australia has announced the launch of MTV Sounds On iHeartRadio, a new pop up radio station to celebrate four decades of the iconic MTV brand.
Launching on ARN’s iHeartRadio Australia on Monday, 2 August, the station will explore epic music moments looking back and beyond to celebrate MTV past, present and future.
