NPO Radio 2 is a public-service radio station in the Netherlands, broadcasting chiefly classic hits. It is part of the Netherlands Public Broadcasting system, NPO.

History[edit]

The origins of the station go back to "Hilversum 1", launched in 1947. The name change to "Radio 2" took place in 1985.[1] In 2014, the name was changed to "NPO Radio 2".

Target audience and content[edit]

The primary target audience comprises listeners aged between 40 and 54. Much of the music played comes from the 1970s and the 1980s, though the schedule also incorporates "evergreen numbers" from the 1960s.[1]

NPO Radio 2 is also known for its annual Radio 2 Top 2000 presentation, broadcast continuously over six to seven days, of "the 2000 best songs ever made" as voted for by listeners.[2]
