Big time bumper music

Big time bumper music: My young friends in the bluegrass group, King Wilkie, are having a big time these days: Next Saturday they’re nominated for IBMA “Emerging Artists of the Year” (trust me, a big deal in bluegrass music) and their website reports they’re on the cover of Japan’s only bluegrass magazine, Moon Shine. But, I’m sorry, those two things didn’t impress me nearly as much as I was today when I heard their song “Brokedown & Lonesome Again” used as bumper music on Car Talk.

While the bad news is that “Brokedown & Lonesome Again” is not available on iTunes, the good news is that King Wilkie has a free download (MP3) of the song (and two other cuts from their current CD) available on their website.
