The Breakfast Club . . .
For many years ABC stations would break away for 1 hour of programming after the morning show.  After the Breakfast Club, they would return to music.
Don McNeill's Breakfast Club began on June 23, 1933. The show was broadcast nationwide from Chicago. In 1933, "The Pepper Pot" radio program welcomed a new host. Don McNeill took over the show and renamed it "The Breakfast Club". The show, a huge success for the NBC-Blue Network and later, ABC Radio, became one of the longest - running radio programs in history. The show aired with McNeill as host until December 27, 1968. "The Breakfast Club" was a morning show that had its share of corny jokes, visiting celebrities and lots of audience participation. (from Dave Tanny's Today In All Kinds Of History Datebook)
