❓ Zed Trivia | Hot 100 The Very First from 1976❓

It's that special time of year where we are celebrating all the wonderful music of the Zed community and I thought for Zed Trivia this week it would be nice to reflect on the VERY FIRST Hot 100 4ZZZ ever did from 1976.

As you can tell it was a very different sound scape back in the mid 70's. It was also a time when bigger, more international artists made the cut. Over the coming weeks more about 4ZZZ's Hot 100 history will be shared.

If you’d like some more Zed Trivia why don’t you listen to the 4ZZZ Podcast - From A to Triple Z.

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