KSAN/San Francisco’s Lamont & Tonelli Carry On An Unusual Bay Area Holiday Tradition

CUMULUS MEDIA Classic Rock KSAN (107.7 THE BONE)/SAN FRANCISCO will broadcast the LAMONT & TONELLI Morning Show’s 22nd annual “Do Not Drink & Drive Show” on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 23rd, from 5-10a. Each year before THANKSGIVING, the on-air duo raises awareness of the dangers of drinking alcohol and driving through a most unusual holiday tradition -- together, they drink alcohol while broadcasting their show, during which time the SAN FRANCISCO Police Department conducts breathalizer tests of the pair.
PD JIM RICHARDS said, “As we approach the holidays, LAMONT & TONELLI will once again demonstrate how stupid it is to drink and drive during the holiday season -- or at any time. By sacrificing their livers for another year, LAMONT & TONELLI underscore the reality that there are many opportunities to drink during the holidays, and there are just as many alternatives to driving while impaired. One of the most common mistakes people make is not realizing what their blood alcohol level is and erroneously thinking they are okay to drive. We thank the SAN FRANCISCO Police Department -- our partners in this broadcast tradition for the last 12 years -- for their assistance in helping us raise awareness among our listeners of how quickly a person can exceed the legal alcohol limit ... and ... how quickly common sense goes out the window. We hope that people take this lesson to heart during the upcoming holiday season.”
LAMONT & TONELLI said, "The beautiful thing about the drunk driving show is we treat it just like a regular night at the bar ... which means we'll be skipping out on the bar-tab at the end of the show!"
