Queen's new reign at the top of our charts

Radio Clatterbridge listeners have given Queen a double seal of approval.

They were voted best band while their single, I Want To Break Free, was the most requested song of 2019.

Hot on the success of the Bohemian Rhapsody film, the movie's title track also made it into the top ten.

And in an unusual turn of events last year's number one, John Lennon's Imagine failed to chart at all.

The Beatles were the second most popular artist over the last twelve months but but did not feature in the Top 30 because their requests were spread evenly over 20 different songs.

The annual countdown was unveiled by presenter Paul Johnston as part of our line-up of special programmes to celebrate the new year.

Listeners across Clatterbridge Health Park requested more than 1,000 songs to be played on air during 2019 - the highest number in five years.
