The "Yawn Patrol"

Yawn Patrol

KSFO's popular morning 7:00 to 8:00 AM wakeup show in 1939 was called the "Yawn Patrol", led by announcer Bill Baldwin (seen here with candle).  It was said to be Northern California's only live talent show on the air before 8:00 AM.  Here, the staff is dressed in pajamas to emphasize the early hour of their broadcasts.
