Bay Sunday: Chill E.B. and Friday Night Live

About This Item

KPIX Bay Sunday segment with Barbara Rodgers which aired on December 6, 1992 but was first broadcast earlier that year on June 23rd, featuring the Friday Night Live High School program. Intended to provide an alternative to alcohol and drugs, this program is partly run by students and we see spokesperson - rapper Chill E.B. - being interviewed and performing onstage at a High School. He explains the basic focus is more on personal pride than just saying no to drinking and drugs,  "A positive, drug-free lifestyle is what I was interested in…The message that shows in most of my music is umm…Pride, you know being proud of who you are, regardless of who you are."  He also describes the positive impact Friday Night Live has already had on Californian teen drunk driving statistics.  A teenage girl comments,  "I know it has helped me because there are programs around on Friday nights for students to not go out and party and drink all night." There are interviews with students and also views of Chill E.B. playing live at the Bay Area Music Awards. This segment ends with views of a performance by gospel singer Vicky Winans. This program was produced by Lori Read and directed by Fred Oey. Note that The California Friday Night Live Partnership (CFNLP) was developed in 1984 in Sacramento by the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP) and is still being run today, as of January 2019. Supporting text and metadata updated for the web in April 2020 by Lisa Ann Nikkel. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
