• Given this week marks the end of the 2015 ratings year in television land, the highly anticipated mini series ‘Molly’, which documents the life and times of Australian music legend Ian “Molly” Meldrum, won’t be screened ’til early in the new year. But we’ll get a little idea of what to expect from it – and some of the music set to feature – when the official soundtrack lands at retailers on Friday. The three disc set is made up of two CDs full of songs from the series and a third disc of classic tracks from across the decades, chosen by the Man In The Hat himself. It features 60 tracks in all.
• The forthcoming tour by Aussie favourites Jarryd James and Meg Mac has now officially sold out.

Jarryd is set to perform at tomorrow night’s ARIA Awards, where he’s nominated in five categories, including Best Male Artist and Best Pop Release.
• Speaking of tomorrow night’s ARIAs, the team at Spotify have revealed their predictions for some of the awards. They’ve analysed their streaming data and have concluded that both Sia and Vance Joy will scoop the pool for Best Female and Best Male respectively. They also predict Sia will bag a gong for Song Of The Year for ‘Elastic Heart’, that Vance will pick up Album Of The Year and that 5 Seconds Of Summer will walk away with Best Group.
