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".
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.
With up to 40mm of rain forecasted for the region on both Thursday and Friday, testing the new line may be hampered causing further delays.
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.
