Top 2000 cafe

This morning we visited the Top 2000 cafe at the Media Park in Hilversum. Since 1999 every year during one week in November the listeners can submit their favorite songs. This year the list of best 2000 songs was voted together by a record 3.2 million votes (by 240 thousand people). The broadcast was from Christmas at noon until New Year’s Eve. The café is a temporary studio, since 2010 specially build in the museum for Sound & Vision. For more information: http://top2012.radio2.nl.

New floor

28 and 29 December. Between Christmas and New Year’s we removed a big part of the old laminate floor upstairs and replaced it with a new one with a different, darker look: old redwood. Thanks to Michel Goudswaard for all his advises and hard work.
