⚑ BALLZZZ IN THE AIR X KIDS WITH CLASS KICKING ARSE ⚑

Annnnnd getting you in the mood for competition this Saturday morning from 9AM! 

Ballzz in the Air VS Kids With Class Kissing Arse present the duel that fans have been clamoring for;  Anthony The Accountant VS Polly, "accountant-o a musician-o" on the field of dreams.

Granted, Polly has a definite edge in terms of youth, fitness, talent, speed, skills, coordination and confidence... BUT there may be other factors to consider... umm... there are other factors, aren't there? The Accountant CAN put together a pretty impressive Venn Diagram, and is good with recording stats... Surely that counts for SOMETHING?

Tune in to 4ZZZ 102.1FM this Saturday between 9am and midday! For the PRE-GAME BATTLE - LIVE ON AIR - Listen live here.

😍 Thank you Josh Guinan πŸ˜

Some BIG NEWS Josh Guinan, who you may know as the superstar announcer from Dark Essence is stepping back from his regular spot on Wednesday reception because of other work demands (which are very exciting!). 

Josh has been part of 4ZZZ’s reception team since 2006, which is longer than most of us have even been around the station! 

DON’T PANIC! Fortunately we’re not losing Josh forever, he’ll continue making Dark Essence each week, and something extra for those Dark Essence fans on;

August 4th at King Lear's Throne. Dark Essence plays host to DAMIEN, KAROSHI, HOSTILE ARCHITECT and RAZRWHIP for a dark night of Industrial, Electronica and Darkwave music to celebrate the launch of DAMIEN's latest album, 'Candidate For The Abyss' and Karoshi’s new E.P. ‘Prey To Be Saved’ 

🎸 RHRN - STAN 🎸

This week on Right Here Right Now STAN was in the building gracing us with such warmth and vibrance. It’s always such an honour to platform local talent and STAN has been well loved on the Zed airways since their first single ‘Pity.’

So, if you missed out on their live set click here to watch back.

πŸ₯AOTW | Fingerless - Life, Death, & PrizesπŸ₯

From the AOTW Committee - "Locals Fingerless have been slowly treating us to their obscure charms since 2009. Their latest album 'Life, Death, & Prizes' was quietly anticipated, even with a downer single like 'You Are Going To Die'. Incidentally, that song finished at number 75 in the 4ZZZ Hot 100 last year, and along with another album track 'Leaf Of Stone', received considerable airplay here at the Zeds. This is yet another release for Meanjin community champions 4000 Records. This is also a tax-free exercise."
