Breaker! Breaker!

Hey there Tracksters!  It’s been awhile, and you may have been wondering about my 20 (trucker slang for location).  Well, I’ve been hunkered down with a little ankle-biter (more trucker-speak) and working hard at my new gig as a music supervisor.  It took a special kind of day to inspire a new testimony, and that is today, 10-4, National Trucker’s Day!  I’m going to let the songs speak for themselves, but here is some CB lingo to throw around:

Alligator: Blown tire

Shake the Bushes: Speed ahead to flush out the Bears, aka cops.

Taking Pictures: Cop with a radar gun.

Big Slab: Interstate highway

Shaky-Town: Los Angeles

Beaver-Fever: When you miss your GF or wife. Awwww.

Enjoy these 4 trucking songs and if you are so inclined, check out the film I just worked on The Monkey’s Paw, in limited theatrical release and on demand!
