Around 1998 4ZZZ, 4MBS, and Family Radio started broadcasting from the one installation at Mt Coot-tha. Prior to this 4MBS and Family Radio had merely leased land beside 4ZZZ but then Brisbane City Council decided that having three transmission towers and huts in the one place was an eyesore and encouraged the three radio stations to share facilities. This resulted in the three radio stations developing a company called Broadcasting Park to negotiate with the Council. This company consisted of three shares, one owned by each member station.
Bad Pharmer is a homage to the Slavic mythological legend of Poludnica - the noon demon that slays delirious farmers and field workers in the peak of the mid-day heat, for their crimes against animals and the land.
The band formed in the blazing sugar plantations of Far North Queensland and is led by the vivacious Ania 'Flame' Gano-wolf-icz, a mysterious songstress from the Białowieża Forest who stowed away on a cargo liner and lived for 4 months in pallet box that contained nothing but 40oz bottles of green polish vodka.
Bad Pharmer play their own brand of Bison-grass-infused-punk-rock. A unique flavour
described as having woodruff, vanilla, coconut, and almond notes.
