Some thing very special from the land of Oz. The Triple J Hottest 100 is an annual poll of the most popular songs amongst its listeners. It has been conducted for almost a decade in its present form, and in 2005 it attracted 606,060 votes - the largest music poll in the world. It has also spawned a series of successful compilation CDs, and more recently, music DVDs. The countdown of the top 100 songs on Australia Day weekend, usually accompanied by a barbecue, has become an annual summer ritual for Triple J fans around Australia and around the world.
Hottest 100 Number 1 1992
Hottest 100 Number 2 1993
Live at the Wireless is a long standing tradition of Triple J. It is a weekly broadcast of live music, of a number of forms - open air festivals, smaller concerts, or acoustic performances in the studio. Occasionally, Triple J will host a live performance in a secret location, and give away tickets to a limited number of listeners, to allow them to be a part of the special event.
