Top 50 most popular instrumentals

Last month, on the Bank Holiday Monday, Boom radio broadcast the top 50 most popular instrumentals as voted for by their listeners. At least it was a proper poll where you had some suggestions on their website but you could also add your own suggestions which other radio stations don’t do. Some interesting and unusual choices as well as a few obvious ones. Here is the list. Not a bad radio station. If you’ve not come across it, check it out here
