Los 7 Magníficos “The Sundance Kid”
from Música del Oeste - Vol.2 MP3 Album (Digital Natives/Countdown Media 2011) —Cover of song from George Roy Hill's BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID (1969). Today's broadcast honors Burt Bacharach's film score, and that film's surprisingly subversive spirit (written by THE PRINCESS BRIDE's William Goldman). Music bed for intro.
