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".
Frenchman fronting court over alleged Picasso thefts
The retired electrician said he was hired to work on Picasso’s home before the artist died in 1973, becoming close friends with the man and his wife.
He says Jacqueline Picasso gifted him the nearly 300 drawings and sketches when he finished job, but the Picasso administration says it’s likely the works were stolen.
Administration lawyer Jean-Jacques Neuer says “If someone gives you 271 Picasso works, you remember that."
The trial is expected to last three days.
