In Australian culture most people tend to fall into two main categories regarding their passions, they’re either sports fanatics or music lovers. It is these two tribes of people that Presentation Night hopes to bring together.
The latest incarnation of popular website Presentation Night is a conversational show between iconic Sydney Swans footballer Jude Bolton and Australian hip-hop star Urthboy as they discuss the trials and tribulations of professional footballers and musicians, and the crossovers between those worlds.
Urthboy, a longtime Sydney Swans fan says: “I never imagined that my time as a musician would result in an invitation to talk about football and music with a legendary footballer such as Jude, so I jumped at the opportunity and I’m really pumped.”
The best description of the show is “a relaxed convo at the pub, about music which is sometimes referred to as art and footy, which I think has an artistic quality about it with the athleticism, movement, and skill on display” says Urthboy.
To ensure a smooth flow to the night, the show is hosted by broadcaster Francis Leach, who has extensive experience in both music and sport having hosted Triple J’s Three Hours of Power before moving onto ABC Radio’s Grandstand Breakfast. (JA)
