Wednesday Is National ‘One Hit Wonder Day’

One Hit Wonders


With September 25th being National “One Hit Wonder Day,” I thought it would be fun to put together a music list of one hit wonders.

A few of us here at the radio station put our heads together and this is what we’ve come up with so far.

If you can think of any more, pop over to the KSOO Facebook page and add them to the comment section.
