The father-daughter radio team of Mal and Jennifer Sharpe continue their exploration of interesting examples of what they call "photo walls" — collections of pictures of friends and celebrities often seen displayed at small businesses, especially restaurants.

In this episode, they take us to Pioneertown, the site of an old cowboy movie set built in the high desert of Southern California. Pioneertown is now a tourist destination, complete with restaurant and bowling alley.
