On 14 December 1988, 4ZZZ was taken off air and forcibly evicted from its UQ premises by the then student union executive, headed by one Victoria Brazil.

Ruptured South Australian pipeline leaves 9000 homes and business without gas for a week
Although welding the new pipe was expected to be finished this Thursday, it needs at least 24 hours to cure before any gas can start flowing.

After Sunday’s pipeline rupture, more than 5000 households and businesses in Port Pirie as well as 4000 in Whyalla have been without gas for most of this week.
