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".
Fire ants moving in on Lockyer Valley's salad bowl
They were first found in Greater Brisbane in 2001 mostly spreading through the urban areas of Ipswich, Logan and southern Brisbane.
On Wednesday, Biosecurity Queensland's director Sarah Corcoran confirmed fire ants which devastated American crops are now approaching our Lockyer Valley region.
The Lockyer Valley produces most of Australia's beetroot as well as 40% of the vegetables consumed in Southeast Queensland.
Ms Corcoran said, "It would have serious impacts on the production of the crops if they become established, as they actually eat various crops".
