The CAN TV Weekend Viewing Report: Rock The Holidays.

"JBTV is returning this holiday season to CAN TV for the 26th annual Safe Drive Live Music Marathon, bringing viewers some of the biggest indie and alternative rock bands with a reminder to drive safely.

"It's a way to get the message across in a non-traditional format," said Jerry Bryant, the host of the rock marathon. "It's exciting that we get to do this each and every year."

"This year, the show features 10 hours of performances by up-and-coming acts and popular bands like Fall Out Boy, The 1975, Hozier, Foster the People, and Fitz and the Tantrums.

"The performances are accompanied by messages from Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White and the bands themselves that focus on the deadly risks of texting behind the wheel, drunk driving, and other dangerous practices.

"All of the bands were excited to be a part of it," Bryant said. "They're on the road each and every day, so they understand why this cause is so important."

"Road safety advocate Marti Belluschi, a victim of an accident involving a drunk driver, has worked with Jerry on the program from day one. She said the marathon is an effective way to remind young drivers not to drive while impaired.

"Jerry has really made a difference by reaching adults with a message communicated by musicians who younger adults, in particular, are more likely to follow," Belluschi said.

Catch the Safe Drive Live Music Marathon on CAN TV:

Saturday, December 27, at noon and 11 p.m. on CAN TV19.

Wednesday, December 31, at 9 a.m. on CAN TV21.
