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".
Indigenous remains to stay in State museums
Indigenous people are dismayed by a decision the current Queensland LNP government has taken not to fund a pilot program for the repatriation of ancestor remains from the Queensland Museum to their homelands for burial.
The decision could mean Indigenous people will not be able to properly farewell their ancestors and ensure their passage into the next world.
Brisbane Line reporter Steven Riggall spoke with Bob Weatherall, Chair of the Centre for Indigenous Cultural Policy.
