I have been looking for an iTunes or MP3 download of this song and cannot find it. To the best of my recollection a DJ, Hal Moore, used to play it at 5 pm on Firdays on KHOW, I'd guess it started about 1969 or so. I graduated from college and moved to Casper, Wy, to work. I used to bust out of work at 4 on Fridays when making a trip to Colorado about once a month. I could get far enough south to pick up the radio signal at 5. It was really great because Hal would tell everyone to stop, face the purple mountains majesty, put their hand over their heart and give thanks to live in the greatest state of the union. Then he'd play the Colorado song. It was really outstanding. This went on for a number of years but has faded from the local memory, I suppose. I do miss it. So, if anyone has a place where I can get a download of the song, let me know.
