Ace, you "Aced" me by 4 days. I too spent the 99 cent to get it at iTunes tonight. I grew up in the Springs. I'm 47 now, and I remember Fridays at 5:00 when I was a kid, listening to KHOW with my family. Hal and Charlie would kick off the "Wonderful Weekend in The West" saying something about facing the majestic purple mountains with hand on heart. Then the song started with the banjo and the cowboy whistle. We would sing along. Such a fond memory. I wish I could find a recording of that whole intro.
