WELCOME TO THE HOME OF "THE BREAKFAST SERIAL" !
JONNIE KING and his syndicated daily-serialized Morning Feature for radio, "THE BREAKFAST SERIAL", have been heard in cities all-across America since 1973. From St. Louis to Connecticut, from Little Rock to Washington, from Kansas City to Detroit, "The Breakfast Serial" has entertained audiences from Coast-to-Coast...and, in the process, has become a true legendary "Cult Classic".
"The Breakfast Serial" celebrates the very best of "Golden Age" radio, taking both new listeners & old on a "Trip Back In Time" featuring the excitement of Drama, Mystery, Science-Fiction, Comedy, Detective Stories...and, of course, Special Features starring the "Great Radio Heroes" of all-time...in the lost "Art Form" of early Radio.
The "Serials" were always the "cliff hangers" that kept you coming back day-after-day, week-after-week, and Jonnie re-created all of that excitement, action, and, adventure, into one of the longest-running syndicated features EVER created for Radio.
But what makes "The Breakfast Serial" so special is Jonnie's meticulous research that is incorporated into each each and every show. Information about the actors, the announcers, histories of the shows, the networks, the time periods they were produced in. Plus trivia & related facts and information are all included, and have helped make "The Breakfast Serial" a legendary classic to all who have heard it through the years.
