Beatles voted top of the pops.
They voted the Fab Four's double A-side Strawberry Fields Forever/Penny Lane as the greatest single to come out of Liverpool in a poll of more than 4,000 Virgin Radio listeners.
The support for the Beatles meant only a handful of votes separated many of the other tracks, with The La's scraping into second place with their only hit, There She Goes.
Show host Pete Mitchell said: "Liverpool seems to provide a definitive artist for every era, each time pushing music and the boundaries of pop forward.
