In 2008, college student Kevin Toomey was cruising around Columbus, Ohio, listening to AM radio, when a jingle for Rotolo's Pizza came on. It was love at first listen, and it set him on a 13-year quest to find out who wrote and performed the jingle. He even made a short documentary about the mystery.
In this Snacktime episode, Amory tells Ben about Kevin and his pizza jingle quest, which — finally — has a delicious conclusion.
