We kick off the New Year with a look at a true Australian musical classic that deserves alot more love than most musicals from the early '80s: Starstruck (1982). Noise Junkie's Heather Drain and Kulturecast newbie author Rachel McPadden program the episode and kick off the month with talk about Jo Kennedy, Aussie filmmaking, and the fan theory ending.

Directed by Gillian Armstrong, the film follows Jo Kennedy as a young waitress in Sydney, Australia who has dreams of becoming a rockstar. Along with her cousin Angus, she attempts by any means necessary to make a name for herself in the Aussie music scene of the '80s. It's a cult classic that deserves a proper reappraisal by a wider audience.
