Sirius XM Radio announced today that, for the first time ever, Ian Schrager will share a behind the scenes look at the legendary club Studio 54, on Studio 54 Radio, channel 15.
The exclusive, revealing two-part interview special, “Schrager on Studio,” will feature the visionary Studio 54 co-founder and international hotelier sitting down with fashion icon Norma Kamali to share the inside story of the legendary and iconic nightclub.
“Ian Schrager unquestionably has had his finger on the pulse of pop culture for decades. Along with Steve Rubell, he created the world’s ultimate dance explosion and a club so unique it is still a household name today all over the world,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “In this one of a kind interview, Ian Schrager talks about an era, time and place that still resonates and whose cultural impact is still being felt today. And who better to pair him with than Norma Kamali, a designer who helped define an unforgettable and enduring period of fashion and style.”
“I never talked about Studio 54 until now,” said Schrager. “And I thought SiriusXM was the perfect place to do it.”
“Schrager on Studio” Part 1 will air Saturday, December 24 at 6:00 pm ET and “Schrager on Studio” Part 2 will air on Sunday, December 25 at12:00 pm ET. The interview special will be rebroadcast on Saturday, December 31 at 4:00 pm ET and Sunday, January 1 at 2:00 pm ET.
SiriusXM launched Studio 54 Radio, a 24/7 commercial-free channel devoted to the best classic dance and disco, as a tribute to the music often played in the legendary club created by Rubell and Schrager. The channel, launched in August, features music that comes from the vaults and special record collections of insiders, much of which has never been heard since the club permanently closed its doors. Studio 54 Radio also includes The Marc and Myra Show, the weekly interview series featuring Studio 54 insiders sharing many never before told personal stories and anecdotes about the renowned club.
On October 18, SiriusXM, along with members of the original Studio 54 team, reopened Studio 54, at its original location, for “One Night Only.”
