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".
Queer Radio interview with Ian Cole (ABBA in Australia 40th anniversary)
Since the 40th anniversary of ABBA performing in Australia is just around the corner, we had to speak with two authorities on all things ABBA. After Kristian, we spoke with Ian Cole who was present at the ABBA concert 40 years ago in Sydney as a bouncing 12 year old. Listen in to hear his experience.
