Wednesday, 24 February, 2016

In this, the final “extra” accompanying our epic Top 10 of 2015 show, we present our collated Listener Top 10 and supplemental lists. These were determined by adding up everyone’s contributions, unweighted (i.e. it doesn’t matter where a particular title appeared on a list – a “1” counts for the same as a “10”).
