Radio 2's Top 100 Favourite Albums

Radio 2's Top 100 Favourite Albums

Earlier this year, as part of our album season, we asked listeners to pick their favourite from our list of Radio 2's Top 100 Most Played Albums.

Our shortlist was made up of albums whose tracks are played by Radio 2 most regularly, and we only allowed one album per artist. We chose studio albums only - no soundtracks, live shows or compilations.

Over 100,000 people voted, and on 1st April 2013, we counted down the results of your votes all day before Jo Whiley announced the winner in a special Easter show.

You can re-live the countdown on our blog.
