Ollie Wards is a Kiwi who works in Australia as a content director at Triple J - the cutting edge music station at the ABC which every year counts down the 'Hottest 100' songs on Australia Day, January 26. This year Ollie found himself in the middle of a heated debate amid calls for the countdown to be shifted to a new date, away from what indigenous Australians refer to as Invasion Day - a day of mourning, rather than celebration. http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/
