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".
BCC clash with Brisbane Aboriginal Sovereign Embassy
Monday saw the Brisbane City Council descend on the Brisbane Aboriginal Sovereign Embassy, which saw the sites sacred fire being extinguished.

4zzz reporter Sarah Wykes spoke to Kevin Arjin about the events of the day and the actions of the Brisbane City Council.
Lord Mayor Quirk's office was unavailable for comment at the time.
