“Cobba and Koogs wind back the clock each week and chat with legends of our region,” he said. 

“It’s been incredible to hear from the likes of Tim Watson, Tony Beck and David Flood – just to name a few – to really get great insight into their time in the leagues. 

“This week is going to feature arguably the greatest AFL coach – at least of the modern era – joining the boys.” 

Clarkson coached the Hawks to premierships in 2008 and a three-peat from 2013 to 2015. His 134-game playing career included careers with North Melbourne and Melbourne. 

The Shirtfront runs from 8am to 10am. People can listen to past shows via website
