Two of Australia's best.

In the ultimate Christmas bonus for anyone over the age of 40, John Farnham and Olivia Newton-John are joining smoothfm. Get ready to turn your dials (do any radios still have dials?) this Sunday the 18th of December and Sunday 25th December, Christmas Day, as the duo host their own show.

The multi-ARIA Award winners recently released a brand new album Friends For Christmas, following their last collaborative album, Two Strong Hearts, which reached number one on the ARIA chart.

The album itself is a collection of John and Olivia's favourite Christmas songs and includes all the classic bangers like 'Let It Snow', 'Have Yourself A Merry Christmas' and 'Santa Claus Is Coming To Town'. You can actually still buy it on CD, or download it.

The pair will also be part of smoothfm's Australia Day Top 500 Countdown on Thursday 26 January.

"Having two Australian-icons join forces on smoothfm is incredible. The chemistry between John and Olivia will be something special for our listeners and we can't wait for them to play some of their favourite songs and share their stories," Peter Clay, smoothfm Program Director said in a brand statement.

This is Farnham's first time hosting a show on smoothfm, and he is pumped.

"When we are working and doing our shows, we never really get to connect with the audience on a one-on-one basis. So it's nice to be able to talk to people and hear what they think," Farnham said.

John and Olivia will entertain smoothfm listeners and bring some Christmas cheer, with Olivia particularly excited to be sharing songs from their new album on Christmas Day.

Newton-John is excited, too.

"I think it's a perfect day for us to be on-air because John Farnham and I have recorded this very beautiful Christmas record and we hope that people are getting to hear the tracks and have a wonderful Christmas Day," Newton-John said.
