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.
WHEN "THE BREAKFAST SERIAL" celebrated its 35th Anniversary in 2008, in answer to many requests, Jonnie King authorized the release of his ENTIRE Catalog of these fantastic shows, never before available to the public. All have been digitally re-mastered and are available on CD !

OUR FEATURED BOOK...
THE OFFICIAL GUIDE TO "INNER SANCTUM MYSTERIES": BEHIND THE CREAKING DOOR, By Martin Grams, Jr. OTR Publishing, Pub. (2002)
THIS BOOK IS A TRUE CLASSIC ! "INNER SANCTUM MYSTERIES" was an OTR mainstay from 1941-to-1952. In addition, it has always been a mainstay in our Catalog during the entire history of "The Breakfast Serial" , since I created it in 1973 !
To quote from the back cover of this remarkable book " 'Inner Sanctum Mystery' is considered by many as the founding father of radio horrors. Known for its signature opening, a creaking door, Raymond the host invited listeners in for a weekly half-hour fright fest of murder and madness.
Years of research and a wealth of information can be found within these pages...making this book a 'must have' for every old-time radio fan."
