Old Time fiddler and songwriter Bill Hicks died this week.  He was 75 years old.   WUNC’s Program Director remembers him on this episode of the Songs We Love podcast with a close listen to his iconic song “The SOB In The Carvel Truck."

In a Facebook post announcing Bill’s passing the Red Clay Ramblers described their old friend as “...one of the finest musicians to come out of the 20th-century American South, and he leaves a great legacy of fiddling, singing, and songwriting."
