The Los Angeles Breakfast Club: ON THE AIR
About This Show
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. “The Los Angeles Breakfast Club: ON THE AIR” is a tribute to the days of yesteryear when the LABC was a fixture on the radio and it's a monthly review and preview of happenings at the Democracy of Ham 'N Eggs. The show is hosted and produced by podcast veteran Phil Leirness, co-host and co-producer of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour and a weekly USA cultural correspondent to the UK’s “Midweek Drive” program on Siren FM and Southside Broadcasting.
