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".
David McAuley of Yeppoon grateful to those who helped save his life
Mr McAuley’s life was saved by Yeppoon resident Paul Jowsey (Jo-sea), who coincidentally had come to the victim’s business to exchange his old gas bottle for a new one and when he couldn't find Mr McAuley at the front of the factory, he made his way around the back, where he found the victim lying on the ground unconscious.
Mr Jowsey (Jo-sea) rushed back to his shop to raise the alarm and with the help of Yeppoon paramedics, ambulance officers and fire personnel, David was brought back to life, and later recovered.
"If I had been there another three minutes, I could have been dead," says Mr McAuley.
