*Actual hosting may not be real.
In 2007, the ABC overnight music video program “RAGE” ran a competition to host 10 songs (I think) as part of its 20th anniversary celebrations.
I kinda accepted that I would not win so I made my own version using the (then) relatively new Playlist feature on YouTube.
A lot of the songs I selected have been taken down; breaking the playlist. I sat down and found them again (thanks to the rise of Vevo, they are mostly legit now!)
And here it is:
