Short info

From the Gadget Warehouse, perhaps the worst idea ever to emerge from Toshiba: the Sonic Jacket.

Detailed information

Dick showed the Toshiba Sonic Jacket on TV about 20 years ago, a white jacket with 6 pockets for amplifier, speakers and your cassette player.  It was never commercially released.
A forerunner of the Scott E-Vest.

Spooky, Friday 13th

Near the start of the show, we hear a familiar TV theme, but neither Dick nor Leo knows where it comes from.  It's the theme from 24.  Spooky!

Ray Charles and Ray Charles

A listener explains that the song from the Perry Como Show "We Get Letters" was written by "Charles Ray Offenberg" who also called himself Ray Charles.  That explains why "We Get Letters" does not sound soulful, because it's the other Ray Charles.

Mad Minute

Dick and Sara Fowler on "Stress".
