Happy 303 Day, y'all! (Or is it Merry 303 Day? We can never get it straight). Today, in case you haven't noticed is March 3 -- or 303, if you're into that whole brevity thing -- which just happens to be the area code of our fine city and the surrounding areas. In honor of that serendipitous convergence, our friends over at KTCL have created a special holiday (which is sure to become a state holiday, if we can convince those in 720, 719 and 970 to co-sign the initiative) celebrating all things 303.
Tune in to Channel 93.3 today, and you'll hear tons of Colorado music, along with a cast of characters offering up their favorite memories of our fine state. Oh and if you're not already wearing your pride on your sleeve, be sure to head home at lunch and grab some sort clothing item to represent -- Broncos, AVs or Rockies jersies or your ratty old Fluid shirt. All hail the three-zero-threezy!
