The Breakfast Club was a morning variety show that aired on NBC (and later ABC) for 35 1/2 years, from June 23, 1933 to December 27, 1968. Hosted by Don McNeil, the show earned its reputation as the most “unrehearsed” program, after McNeil decided to drop off the script to become spontaneous in hosting. Because of that, more listeners became interested on the show, Cream of Wheat offered sponsorship, and guest celebrities got better. Apart from McNeil, other regulars in the show included Patsy Lee, Johnny Desmond, Marion Mann, Alice Lon, and the stars of Fibber McGee and Molly Jim and Marion Jordan. This show also had its television version which aired in 1950, entitled Don McNeill’s TV Club.
