Wonder's tunes on tap at Milton-Freewater library


MILTON-FREEWATER -- In the summer of 1963 Little Stevie Wonder exploded onto the pop music charts with a live recording called "Fingertips, Part 2." It went to No. 1 and stayed there three weeks. He scored big hit records throughout the 1960s, '70s, and '80s, hitting No. 1 eight more times.
