Blood pressure rises for the Top 2000
The online viewers saw that Roodbeen and Kijk in de Vegte pretended to be Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Minister Hugo de Jonge during their well-known corona press conferences. Even the almost even more famous sign language interpreter stood between them.
“Every day the blood pressure is rising slightly,” said Roodbeen solemnly this morning on behalf of “the DJ council”. “The Top 2000 is on the rise. We cannot ignore it. If we look at the figures soberly, then things are going well, but we will certainly go to a peak. We can vote until December 7, so take your responsibility. Hamster your list together as much as possible. As a general advice: stay at home as much as possible during the last week of the year. Reduce the R to 2 as much as possible. ”
During a specially added press conference about the Top 2000, @JWRoodbeen and @JeroenKIDV have just announced a Home Package of measures. Read all about it here: https://t.co/W1I1wwNr26 # Top2000 #Voting week pic.twitter.com/fclnbz1uLJ

Top 2000 Café
During the press co – for which the 8 o’clock news was interrupted live – Jeroen Kijk in de Vegte discussed the annually popular Top 2000 Café. The DJs play the 2000 records chosen by listeners and are invariably visited by many thousands of people. “The cafe” has since been built, but it is still unclear – due to corona – whether it may be visited to a limited extent or whether it should remain empty (desolately) this year.
“That is why we are going to get the Top 2000 Café,” said Kijk in de Vegte. “We are working on a home package of measures, including beer coasters, flags and an immense do-it-yourself poster. This is how we bring the virus to a peak at home. ” Radio 2 gives listeners the opportunity to create their own Top 2000 Café.
Top2000 press conference. Brilliant ?.

Vote for “the list”
Look in the Vegte gave the listeners a boost. “Waiting for the Top 2000 is not always easy, but we know that we can all do it. You can find the roadmap for this on NPOradio2.nl. ”

Last year the Top 5 was: 1. Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody 2. The Eagles – Hotel California 3. Billy Joel – Piano Man 4. Danny Vera – Rollercoaster (new arrival) 5. Led Zeppelin – Stairway to Heaven.
