    In April 2016, SiriusXM launched the limited-run ONEderland on channel 18. It was supposed to air for only four weeks but proved to be so popular it became a permanent channel. ONEderland features all the "one-hit wonders" and can be heard on channel 303 online and on the SiriusXM app. Here is a small sample of the playlist -- but I don't know why MMMBop is included. Hanson reached #9 with I Will Come To You and had two other songs that were top-30 hits. And how can Wheatus and SR-71 be considered "one-hit wonders" when their songs didn't even make the Hot 100?

    Today's Satellite Survey countdown on the '60s channel featured this week in 1962. Bruce Channel's Hey Baby was number one. Billy Joe & the Checkmates' Percolator Twist was #10. The song was adapted from this Maxwell House "singing coffee pot" commercial:

    The song was reviewed in the December 11, 1961 issue of Billboard: "Instrumental has a fresh melody line and uncommon instrumentation. Merits exposure." That "uncommon instrumentation" was a dampened xylophone. As for "Billy Joe," that was an alias of Doré Records co-founder Louis Bideu, who co-wrote Percolator Twist with Ernie Freeman but did not play on the recording. The musicians were Freeman on xylophone, Rene Hall on guitar, Red Callender on bass and Earl Palmer on drums. In 2000, Palmer became one of the first session musicians to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Here is the song:

The Christmas-themed tour is the first of its kind for Wilson, who will also play cuts off his 2005 seasonal LP What I Really Want For Christmas during the performances.
