🏆 4ZZZ at the QMAs 🥂

Earlier this week some of the amazing 4ZZZ team attended the Queensland Music Awards. Our very own station dad Stephen Stockwell presented a few awards for the evening.

It was a pleasure to attend and celebrate the incredible musical talent of this city and state. We are so elated for ALL the winners & nominees!

A particular highlight of the evening was hearing Lindy Morrison from the Go Betweens acceptance speech for receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award. She spoke with such presence about the influence of music in Brisbane and the history of some of her life’s work in music. She received a standing ovation, my words simply can not capture the impact of her speech so if you’d like to have read you can click here.
