We’re just about halfway in Laurel, Gary and Mark’s A-Z of Brisbane Icons and we’re up to letter J.

Today’s a day that’s choc-a-block full of Brisbane Iconic People, including Jackie McDonald, John Knox and Judith Wright.

We dug up some of Jackie’s old videos for Hey Hey It’s Saturday, and it brings back the nostalgia in waves!

John Knox was a newsreader and news director for us here at 4KQ, and we dug up this old pic of the team…

Judith Wright was a Queenslander for thirty years and an advocate for Aboriginal land rights, a poet and an environmentalist.
