Top 2000 ed. 2021

Since 1999, the Top 2000 is an annual marathon radio program, that plays the 2000 most popular songs of all time, from Christmas through New Year's Eve. Hosted by Dutch national radio station NPO Radio 2. Over half of the population of the Netherlands listens to the broadcast each year.
