Born March 5, 1911 Willie Egbert Wesbrooks, was better known under his stage name, Cousin Wilbur. Cousin Wilbur and Stringbean joined Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys in 1940. Wilbur a bass player and Stringbean on Banjo and the two of them performed comedy routines together. Wilbur sings lead on the Blue Grass Boys' recording of one of his featured novelty numbers, "The Coupon Song�. Wilbur left the Blue Grass Boys in 1944, but continued on the Opry as a solo performer. In 1947 he married Blondie Leatherman and they began performing as the Cousin Wilbur and Blondie Brooks Show. This recording was for sale at their shows. There are a few pops and clicks on this one. 40 years of wear and low grade vinyl have taken its toll but this is still a real listenable album and harkens back to the days of the many small road shows that crossed the country. Nice picture of the ol’ Greyhound PD 4104 Silverside they converted into their tour bus. Wilbur put out an autobiography called Everybody’s Cousin but it is hard to find. Wilbur died in August 1984.
