Radio 538, which is the Top 40 for more than 25 years on Friday afternoon, sends, stops at the beginning of november with the broadcasts on the FM transmitter, to make place for the new 538TOP50 on the FM transmitter. Stichting Nederlandse Top 40, under the chairmanship of Erik the Black, wants to prevent this, and demands that the station until the end of this year, the Top 40 continues to broadcast on FM, until the list in January to Qmusic moves.
Friday afternoon found both parties to each other in the court in Amsterdam. There argued Radio 538 that the Stichting Nederlandse Top 40 behind their backs already negotiated with Qmusic. The lawyer of the Top 40 speaks against this and claims that 538 listeners of the Top 40 to their own new program wants to draw.
