After 4ZZZ was evicted from its UQ premises in 1988, staff temporarily broadcast from the Mouth Coot-tha transmission tower, using a cassette player which was set up to go straight to air.
For over 36 years, 4ZZZ has operated on community subscriptions due to its relevance, independence, credibility and respect for its listeners. The costs of running an independent community radio station are large and each August 4ZZZ hosts a subscription drive to entice subscribers and supporters to gain much needed financial support to continue providing radio access to the community.
Passionate listeners and community members love to subscribe during Radiothon (which happens during August every year) as it’s a great chance to win fantastic incentive prizes donated by generous sponsors for station’s biggest fundraiser of the year.
4ZZZ proudly supports local bands, businesses, artists and events while playing the newest and most respected independent music and sourcing the latest in independent and alternative news and current affairs. 4ZZZ also provides training for volunteers who want to be part of a pro-active media organisation, all of which would not be possible without the support of its subscribers.
