Dean and Don

Hi! Dean Opperman here with a word about THE BEST OF DEAN AND DON. People ask me what Iíve been doing lately and I tell them iíve been listening to hundreds of Dean and Don radio shows and editing them down to one-hour albums for all our old fans. And here they are, ready for your approval. Check out Volume 1 for only $2. Why so cheap? Because I believe youíll like it so much youíll want the other albums for a slightly higher price. Yes, they go for 3.99 but think of it this way. Where else can you get five hours of non-stop laughs for less than the cost of a haircut?

History of Dean and Don

For almost 20 years, Dean Opperman and Don Fischer brought their unique brand of humor to the west coast's best radio markets. Market leaders wherever they hit the mikes, they are perhaps best remembered for their entirely unpredictable "Breakfast Club" on Fresno's KKDJ. In 1982, they created a spin-off, "The Lunch Bunch." Originating from the mythical Chat And Chew Restaurant on Highway 99, it was the last daily produced soap opera on American radio, garnering the highest Arbitron ratings in the United States. Opperman and Fischer were joined at various times by Don DeWolf, Bryan Jones, David Hefferman, John Strickland, Gunnar Jensen, and Rachel Donahue. Their shows were heard in San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Fresno, and San Francisco throughout the 80's and early 90's. They ended their partnership with the demise of KKDJ in June, 1994. Fischer is still on the air at KFSR in Fresno, while Opperman is a comedy writer in Las Vegas.
