Thursday 2nd May / presented by Drew Krapljanov
For this episode of the Midnight Special, it's all about Basketball Movies: portrayers of the underdog, purveyors of community and comradery and unabashedly 90’s!
Basketball movies are in a league of their own. Join your host Drew Krapljanov (from bands like Ryan Beno and Didion's Bible), in part one of a series, as we take a closer look at the genre and some of the deeper themes at work, the first film being the iconic Oscar nominated 1994 documentary, Hoop Dreams. Arguably one of the greatest sporting documentaries of all time, Hoop Dreams follows two adolescent African-American boys in Chicago, their families, their community and their triumphs and struggles on their journey through high school, through to college and eventually, to the NBA.
This is Episode 104 of the Midnight Special, originally broadcast on Thursday April 4th - Friday April 5th, 2019. Full episodes of Midnight Special with music uncut available on our Mixcloud page. Podcast archive from 2017-2018 available to stream/download on our website.

Midnight Special is a late night chat show with a different talented host each week. Special guests – the best guests ever – will sit down for a casual, loose conversation on the mic, either live in the studio or pre-recorded at earlier hours.
From musicians, writers, artists, actors, comedians and whoever has an interesting story to tell, the Midnight Special is an opportunity to go beyond the stock questions and understand the creative people in and around (and even outside of) Perth in deeper ways.
