TRIGGER WARNING: This post may be triggering for victims of crime.

"This piece of artwork, submitted by Locked In listener Daria, matches our witchy theme for April Atonement perfectly. Nobody knows atonement like the listeners of Monday nights Locked In program, or the importance of connection to community and culture. Music and art can help us to explore our own path, connect to ourselves and each other, and to manage our mental health during the best and worst of times."

"The Locked In show airs Monday from 6-8PM, reading letters from prisoners locked up in SEQ jails and texts from their family on the outside. The legacy of prison programming at 4ZZZ began 40 years ago with a piece of artwork, and continues today with the 100th piece of artwork from listeners to be hung in the stairs at the station this month." - C.J. Locked In Announcer and Zed Legend.

Here is Daria's drawing of a witch in purple with bright orange hair and a purple cat, riding a broom.

โšซ Dark Essence | In The Dark โšซ

The DARKEST episode of Dark Essence to date!!!

โšก There were some big storms over the long weekend and the station lost power, don't worry every is in working order but the block went out at around midnight, a big shout out to our Tech Legend Pat for helping out in the middle of the night to keep them good late night time vibes going. โšก

A message from Announcer Josh, "Seriously; in my 19 years at 4ZZZ, this is only the second time I've personally had a power outage during my shift (the first was during a graveyard shift called Catastrophic Utopia in 2009-ish). I've had to evacuate during Dark Essence in the past. I've also had to give a police report whilst also broadcasting. But that was the first Dark Essence where everything went down."

Here is a photo of Studio 1 in complete darkness.

๐ŸŽถ AOTW | Cuckoo Coco - N.M.F.K. ๐Ÿ’€

From the AOTW Committee: "Rapper/Producer Coco may have moved to Mount Isa, but that hasn't stopped the music flow. Anyone tuning into the Zeds the past year would have heard Cuckoo Coco all over the airwaves with albums 'Mood Street Gas Lighting' and 'Twice Exceptional'. Coco also performed both our First Nations Carpark Show and our Sounds Like Community Radio day here at the station in 2022. The new album 'Not Made For Kids' is on trend - that being - Cuckoo Coco is so damn prolific. The album follows themes of indigenous life in today's culture of "Australia" (Victim Of Society, The Quarters), braggadocio rap (Be The Boss, Middle Shift Bullshit) & happiness/love (Great Day, KABUKI). Enjoy."

โ“ Zed Trivia | Brisbane Trams โ“

Not that this is completely related to Zed as ‘trivia’ however I thought it was a cool fact worth sharing about our amazing city.

On this day, April 13th 1969 was the last day trams operated in Brisbane that was over 50 years ago now ๐Ÿ˜ฑ We previously had trams for 85 years up until that point. There were trams up Queen Street as well as crossing over the old Victoria Bridge.

Here are some photos thanks to BCC.

That's all for this week, be sure to check your inbox next week for the next instalment of Zedletter!
