👋🏽 Hey Zed Fam! 👋🏽

Annnnnnd that’s (pretty much) a wrap on Radiothon for 2023! My apologies for leading you all on with an announcement that prize winners would be announced in this Zedletter, I got waaaaaaaay to excited and forgot that THE DRAW IS STILL OPEN until midnight TONIGHT (31st August), so get those tail end prizes such as; a year of fresh produce from ALL MY FRIENDS grocer, a year of beer from FELONS, a golden ticket for FIVE STAR CINEMAS or a custom arcade cabinet from NETHERWORLD.

So click here and subscribe.

I can lead you on with something else though 😉 such as our new monthly edition to the Zedletter (featured below) our HOT SINGLES, so get ready to swipe left 🔥.

Other than subscribing to support the community radio station you know and love, things are returning to a regular level of Zed chaos this week, here is a photo of some busy, but friendly faces. We’re working away on so many things…

 🎧 Sounds Like Community Radio 2023! 🎧

4ZZZ and Amrap come together to celebrate community radio and Australian music!

On Tuesday, September 5, from 2pm, we're celebrating the millions of listeners that tune into community radio each week, the people that make it and the incredible Australian music that keeps everyone all in.

Sounds Like Community Radio is a live music event, a live music broadcast and an open day for community radio. We're inviting YOU to come down to the 4ZZZ carpark, bear witness to some great Australian music as well as eat, drink and be merry while meeting some of the people who make community radio happen around the country.

The day features live performances from Brisbane rap raconteur Fred Leone with Yirinda, rising Tasmanian hip hop artist Grace Chia, Brisbane reggae-funk fusion upstarts Tjaka, Adelaide post-punk sweethearts The Empty Threats, Melbourne grunge acolytes Porpoise Spit and Brisbane dream pop idol Seja. Kicking off proceedings is globally-known Brisbane beatsmith Sampology.

On-air and in person will be people from 4ZZZ, Sydney's 2SER and FBi Radio, Melbourne's SYN, 3RRR and PBS FM and Hobart's EDGE Radio.

You can also meet the people from the Australian Music Radio Airplay Project – Amrap. They're the people who deliver Australian music to community radio to ensure that 37% of music played on the network of stations is Australian.

Find out more about Amrap at amrap.org.au.
