It’s a MONSTER birthday year for Zed – 35 years old in December 2010 and still going from strength-to-strength.

To celebrate, we have ambitious plans to refurbish the grand old lady to keep her young-at-heart and to help build on our community atmosphere. We’re also aiming to make a splash with our ‘Paint The Town Zed’ international competition – with the prize allowing the winning artist to use the front of Zed Towers as a blank canvas to create a new iconic building on the Brisbane landscape. It’s going to be HUGE!

We want as many subscribers, listeners, volunteers, everyone in fact, to send us their memories, anecdotes and old photos of 4ZzZ. Did you have your first kiss with Zed in the background? Did you propose while crooning to Zed? Did 4ZzZ help you to relax after a particularly tough physics exam? Then let us know. We want to hear as many stories as possible. Ask your parents, too!!! Send all your stories to info@4zzzfm.org.au.

And don’t forget – 4ZzZ is YOUR community station. We want you to be part of what we do as we look forward to the next 35 years. Be part of the Zed action…..

It’s NOT one for landlords! Warning! “Felafel” contains explicit language, and drug and sexual references. Shows run until Friday 15th January, and tickets can be purchased through www.artstheatre.com.au.The Cribs have just released their fourth album, ‘Ignore The Ignorant’, and now they’re coming to Brisbane to show it off!

reviewsWoodford Woodford Wrap-upSo 4ZzZ’s team of intrepid field reporters have reluctantly returned from their Woodford Folk Festival outside broadcast with lots of interviews and live sets so keep your ears peeled for some exciting Woodford content in the coming weeks.The team was up working on a national broadcast for the Community Radio Network and had the pleasure of catching up with the likes of LABJACD, Hungry Kids of Hungary, Afro Dizzi Act and Mojo Juju. That’s not all though, through the course of the festival the team recorded and interviewed over 40 acts so there are some aural delights to suit every taste.Our broadcast was humbly supported by the Australian Music Radio Airplay Project and was created by dedicated 4ZzZ and 4EB volunteers.

blogs Prehistoric Sounds Prehistoric Sounds
The author of Prehistoric Sounds was a hoarder. And we’re happy he was as he regularly posts newspaper and magazine clippings regarding some of rock’s greatest musicians he kept from his youth. Not only do you get snapshots from the past but there’s also a fair bit of history and rather interesting information concerning 4ZzZ.http://prehistoricsounds.blogspot.com/
giveawaysNowhere Boy Nowhere Boy
Imagine John Lennon’s childhood… A lonely teenager, curious and sharp, growing up in the shattered city of Liverpool. Two incredible women clash for his love. Mimi (Kristin Scott-Thomas), the formidable aunt who raised him, and Julia (Anne-Marie Duff), the spirited mother who gave him up. Yearning for a normal family, John (Aaron Johnson) escapes into music. His fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the young Paul McCartney. But just as John’s new life begins, the truth about his past leads to a tragedy he would never escape. Poignant and powerful, the untold story of the boy who created The Beatles.
