    I also have a certain podcast's intro and outro now too which bring a smile to my face! (Thank you Hal and Jim O')

    What do I already have? Remember a few years back when the dynamic duo of Ric and James wrote a couple of numbers for EAA Radio about AirVenture? Yep, I hve MP3s of all three that I know of: AirVenture Blues, North 40, and my personal favorite Rock Your Wings! If they wrote any others I'd be searching for them too!!! Oh, and although it isn't really "aviation" I also have several pieces played by Jerry's One Man Band on my favorite list, they bring both a smile to my face and a tear to my eye simultaneously.

    I really like this one, not to fast, (the Champ ain't fast) not to slow, just an easy flowing rhythm that works well for the motorcycle also.

    I don't need to tell you how much I love this.

    My iPhone does the same thing.

    I've got pretty much that same bunch. The "Firefly" theme is perfect - "you can't take the sky from me." I just wish there was an extended version.

    To me there's still nothing as rousing as launching into flight singing the Army Air Corps (now Air Force) Song. You got to sing all three verses along with "Toast to the host" bridge.

    That one might inspire some more spirited flying...........
    When I watch people like that, and Tommy Emmanuel, I just want to make kindling out of mine !
