MILTON-FREEWATER — Your favorite oldie may be a lot older than you thought it was. You might recall “My Blue Heaven” was a hit for Fats Domino in 1956, but it was a number one hit three decades earlier for Paul Whiteman. How about “Won’t You Come Home, Bill Bailey,” a 1960 hit for Bobby Darin? It was number one for Arthur Collins way back in 1902.

Top 40 hits of the rock and roll era that made the charts decades earlier will be featured during Friday’s Oldies Night @ The Library, beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the Milton-Freewater Public Library, 8 S.W. Eighth Ave.

More than 100 hits of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s were remakes of much older songs — so head to the free event for a chance to hear oldie remakes that made it big. Call 541-938-8246 for more information.
