Don McNeill and His Breakfast Club

SKU: BPB-5240445552

In Don McNeill and His Breakfast Club John Doolittle chronicles the cheerfulness, wit, and self-deprecating humor that won Don McNeill the title "King of Corn" and a warm place in the hearts and homes of millions of radio listeners. As host of the Breakfast Club, the longest running program in network radio history, McNeill enraptured a wide audience -- from the people who would travel for miles to participate in his studio audience to his celebrity admirers.During its heyday, the Breakfast Club was hailed by Newsweek as "one of the American Broadcast Company's most smiled-upon possessions. . . . the lifeblood of the network's Chicago office where the show originates." Some of the biggest names in show business dropped by the Breakfast Club including Bob Hope, Jerry Lewis, Jimmy Stewart, Jane Russell, Joe Lewis, Lucille Ball, Danny Kaye, and Groucho Marx, but the show's main attraction was McNeill himself, who, with his grassroots values and good-natured humor presided over a household institution that thrived for 35 years, through wars, the Depression, and three generations of listeners. Don McNeill and His Breakfast Club includes a wonderful collection of black and white photos, and is accompanied by a delightful CD of Breakfast Club highlights.
