NPO Radio 2 emerged in 1985 from the former station Hilversum 1, which had already started broadcasting in 1947. The target group of the radio station is primarily the 40 to 54 age group. In addition to music from the 1970s and 1980s, evergreens from the 1960s are also played. In addition, NPO Radio 2 broadcasts various programs as part of themed weeks. The theme week Radio 2 Top 2000 is particularly popular , in which since 1999 the two thousand best-known music titles of all time have been played between Christmas and New Year . Since August 19, 2014, the station has had the addition of NPO in its name.
