4ZZZ launched its glorious tradition of counting down listeners' 100 favourite songs on New Year's Day 1977. More than 10 years later, 2JJJ in Sydney (which employed many ex-Zed staff) began conducting its own Hot 100. Because 4ZZZ held the rights to the name Hot 100, there was a little bit of legal biffo when TripleJ became a national broadcaster, so they changed the name of their survey to the "Hottest 100".

MAKE A BEQUEST
Love Zed for Life? What about after life? All you need to do is include our ABN in your Will. Apparently, less than 10 percent of Australians leave a bequest each year, so it's truly amazing that our supporters are thinking of us and want to make sure we continue as an independent community radio station long after they leave the world and cease subscribing. So, if you're updating your Will soon, please think of us, a relatively small donation from your overall estate could make all the difference to a struggling charity such as 4ZZZ.
Example statement for your Will:
"I bequeath to Creative Broadcasters Ltd (4ZZZ Radio), A.B.N. 62 009 950 958 of 264 Barry Parade, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane 4006, for its general purposes (the whole) or (a specific amount or gift) or (a percentage) or (the residue) of my estate free of all duties for which a receipt from the Station Manager or other authorised person shall be a full discharge to my executor."
All bequests are appreciated equally. There are several options for bequests that you can consider:
1. Specific Gift: This specifies an amount of money or property or some other asset.
2. Percentage or Fractional Bequest: This specifies that a percentage or fraction of the total value of your estate be willed to 4ZZZ.
3. Residual Bequest: This wills to 4ZZZ the remainder of your estate after all expenses have been met and all other beneficiaries have received their inheritances.
4. Whole Estate: This wills the value of your entire estate to 4ZZZ.
OUR PROUD WATT OWNERS - THANK YOU
Our Transmission Ignition Fundraiser through January - April 2012 saw the station playfully 'sell off' it's 5,000 watts for donations of $10 per watt raising close to $50,000 which covered the cost and installation to replace our old and failing transmitter. 4ZZZ is forever grateful for the community's support - view our new transmitter's 'watt owners' here http://www.4zzzfm.org.au/wattowners
