The Los Angeles Breakfast Club: ON THE AIR

Founded in 1925 by business leaders, entertainment figures and politicians, the Los Angeles Breakfast Club is the weekly gathering place for those seeking camaraderie and those who love the history and culture of Los Angeles.

Oct 30, 2021

Welcome to a "spooktacular" installment of "The Los Angeles Breakfast Club: ON THE AIR" as we celebrate Halloween, Hispanic Heritage, and one of the most memorable months on record for the Democracy of Ham an' Eggs! Announcer Marc Hershon gets the ball rolling by sharing a bit of history about Halloween. The supremely talented Olivia Olson sings about "Los Angeles". And Breakfast Club treasurer Kevin Segall welcomes all to the Shrine of Friendship.

Birthdays are celebrated, a time travel expedition back to a magic show in 1984 is taken, "guest reverend" Tom Sanchez takes us down the path that leads to our continuing "Adventures in Friendship", and U.S. Congressman Adam Schiff gets initiated into the club as an honorary member! Good Ham an' Egger Casey Schreiner returns to Los Angeles to discuss his new book all about Griffith Park, Hollywood icon Ruta Lee tells an amazing story about Frank Sinatra and how she got cast in Witness for the Prosecution, and comedy legend Martin Olson discusses his earliest efforts to break into show biz. As if all that wasn't enough, the inimitable Ambassador of Americana, Charles Phoenix makes a spooky good guest appearance!

Of course, there is also a performance by the Don Snyder Orchestra, Lily Leirness gives her "presidential report" previewing what's in store at the Breakfast Club in November and December, and we get better acquainted with the aforementioned master of the macabre, Kevin Segall!
