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".
Mount Maria College student pleads guilty to unlawful wounding
The boy was 14 years-old when he stabbed a fellow student in the neck with a kitchen knife at Mount Maria College at Mitchelton and has pleaded guilty to unlawful wounding but not guilty to attempted murder.
Defence Barrister Robert East says his client's age made him incapable of fully grasping the consequences of his actions, that the student was responding to bullying and that there was powerful evidence that he intended to threaten his classmate, not kill him.
