KLLY Listeners Take It Off For 'Idol'
May 19, 2008 at 1:41 PM (PT)
BUCKLEY BROADCASTING Hot AC KLLY/BAKERSFIELD got some interesting ... um ... exposure during a DARCI AND RICK morning show contest called "Undress for SEACREST." The duo put two listeners on the busiest corners in town during the morning rush hour. The game: The contestants had to take off one item of clothing every time a passing car honked; the one with the most (or any) clothing at the end won tickets to the "AMERICAN IDOL" finale.
As fate would have it, one contestant was the recipient of so many honking cars that he was down to his civvies in no time flat ... which earned the interest of the local police. They were about to arrest him for indecent exposure, but DARCI and RICK were able to convince the cops to let him off (sure was a good thing he signed that waiver, though...). If that wasn't bad enough for the guy, his near-arrest meant that the other listener won.
