Breakfast Club: Show #1 - 4/10/08

Hey Gang...

As much as I hope you can listen to the Breakfast Club and After Breakfast on KFIZ straight through from 6am to 9:30am every weekday, I know you may miss something here and there because you're taking the dog out, getting the kids ready for school, or going to work, so I'll try my best every day to give you a rundown of what when on during the shows, and include important information that our guests may offer. If you miss a phone # or website or a date on the show, check back here on my blog later in the day and I'll hopefully have it posted. I'll try and sort things by the hours they aired. If you're looking for the latest local news, weather and sports, head back to I'll give you the extra stuff here.
