For those lucky few who won prizes during April Atonement CONGRATZZZ! That also includes those of you who won our special 4/20 Prize Packs 😆

One winner I wanted to mention is Ky Lovell who won our Recording + Mix Package from Airlock Studios. This is what he said,

“I am a neurodiverse musician with profound symptoms of Autism who has perfect pitch... who lives and breathes music every waking moment... Music is my life... and music is how I communicate with the world! This is the most AMAAAYYYZING prize... I will treasure this experience forever... WoooHooo xoxoxo”

It’s messages like this that make me tear up 😭

📻 AOTW | VOIID - Watering Dead Flowers 🥀

From the AOTW Committee - "VOIID have long been a staple on the 20 Most Played Tracks on 4ZZZ list, especially with tracks such as 'Lexapro'. A station fave if you like. On top of that, bassist Antonia, used to co-present 4ZZZ's Youth Show on Tuesday nights before the time slot morphed into Right Here Right Now. With this album 'Watering Dead Flowers' VOIID get personal and turn their 90's pedal up a notch. Of course, we love locally produced music on the Zeds."
