Back to the Breakfast Club at 9:45. + As you can see this episode was originally broadcast on the morning of Monday the 8th of December 1941, which was of course, the day after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.

From a historical point of view this is a very interesting episode of The Breakfast Club. Don McNeill still manages to introduce some guests and there is plenty of music but not surprisingly News Bulletins are quite frequent.|
