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".
Australia May Stop Providing Water and Power to Remote Aboriginal Communities
The remote communities are mostly located across Cape York and the Kimberley region of WA. Some communities are permanent, while other communities only live in their region seasonally, making population numbers small and variable.
The federal government announced late last year that it would stop paying for the utilities, making states responsible for their communities. The Western Australian state government says it can't afford to cover the costs.
