'There's a glimpse of hope for older artists, if you have the right song you have a chance of getting it played,' he added.

'Age shouldn't come into it. It does sound mighty on radio.'

Last week, Love Songs was the 25th most played song on Australian radio - charting alongside the likes of Harry Styles, Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa and The Weeknd. 

'There's a glimpse of hope for older artists,' Daryl said musicians' ages shouldn't matter when it came to radio play if the song resonates with audiences
