Retro 500 TopRadio (B) Ed. 2017

TopRadio is a Belgian, Flemish radio station specialized in dance related music.
It started in Ghent in 1982 as Radio One, changed its name to Radio S.I.S. in 1987, and to TOPradio in 1996.
Since January 1st 2018 the station lost its FM broadcasting license and despite massive protest of their fanbase and a +100.000 EUR crowdfunding, the minister of culture Sven Gatz remained deaf and mute to the protest forcing them to continue on the DAB frequencies.
This is their final Retro 500 list aired on FM during the last week of December 2017.
As of March 2018 the Council of State forced Sven Gatz to re-establish the FM License of Top Radio, a decision he 'did not understand' but nevertheless honoured, so if all goes well we'll have a new Retro 500 edition aired on FM in 2018 !
