MILTON-FREEWATER — During the first three decades of the ’60s rock era, a total of  7,913 songs reached the top 40 position on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Some of those are favorites people remember fondly — others, not so much.

 So, which Top 40 hits were the worst ever? BJ the DJ, based on decades of experience as a radio listener, record buyer, disc jockey and music popularity chart addict, has come up with his own worst list. He has narrowed the list down to 50 songs.

To find out BJ the DJ’s not-so-hot list, attend Oldies Night @ The Library Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the Milton-Freewater Public Library, 8 S.W. Eighth St.

The actual list will remain secret until Friday, but a few facts have leaked out. Apparently 1974 was a banner year for bad hit songs, because four top hits from that year made the list. In fact, at least 10 of the 50 songs on the list once topped the charts.

There is no admission charge for the event. For more information, call 541-938-8247.
