The Land of the Rolling Hills

Petaluma is a native Indian word meaning "The Land of the Rolling Hills".

The Lost Jingle

Someone has sent in a jingle to Dick wondering if this was the old letters jingle they were looking for (Episode 285).  It's not a letters jingle at all but a gravy jingle submission.  It's by Dan Lueders.  This was the jingle submission referred to by Dick in Episode 115, which Dick thought was played on Episode 114 but in fact wasn't - at least not on the currently available download.

Voices in your head

Dick and Leo have become voices in Bob Hamilton's head.
