Dime Store Wedding Ring Featured in Fox’s Last Man on Earth

I don't usually toot my horn on these sync-licensing placements of my masters, but as this show, "The Last Man On Earth," is so "special" at the moment, I must note that on episode #3 REV Records artist Dave Sterlings original (unreleased) recording of "Dime Store Wedding Ring" will be featured twice in the show and under the credits at the end so.....you should be able to hear it that's for sure!  Another REV song on the national airwaves...(the first since "Plaything" in '57 I should add...LOL). Here's a link to the show's website - www.fox.com/the-last-man-on-earth
