 ๐ŸŽท Happy 30th Birthday Ska Trek ๐ŸŽท

Please rally around for a two-toned, horn accompanied rendition of Happy Birthday for the iconic 4ZZZ show, Ska Trek.

The show has journeyed through it's adolescene and into middle-age with the sort of grace that the rest of can only dream of and will be marking the occasion on-air tonight and irl on Saturday night at The Cave Inn.

Tonight will be a great look back at the show's 30 year history, with a number of former hosts joining in the celebrations. Make sure to tune in from 8pm.

Saturday will be a skanking good time too, with The Snouts and Fiesta Fiasco gracing The Cave Inn stage alongside Ska Trek DJs from 7pm.

If you miss the show tonight, or want to listen back to this iconic moment, you'll be able to catch up OnDemand through this link. Unfortunately we can't offer a redo if you don't make the gig on Saturday.

๐ŸŽต 4ZZZ Album of the Week | Sachem - The Bigger Picture ๐ŸŽต

From the 4ZZZ AOTW Committee: "Longtime listeners to 4ZZZ will already know of local rapper/producer/singer/emcee/poet and engineer Sachem. He's recently been teaming up with Matt Hsu (our former Community Engagement Coordinator) and his Obscure Orchestra, performing on stages big enough to fit the whole production (RPAC, QPAC). 'The Bigger Picture' also captures the collaboration realised in all the technicolour audio brilliance you'd expect wrapped around an important message. Sachem was recently on the Zeds chatting to Friday Neon's Quentin Ellison, sharing his love for Spaghetti Bolognese. Sounded enticing, like this EP."
