The upscale boutique clothier is joining forces with longtime Lower East Side rocker (and bar owner) Jesse Malin for a new monthly downtown-inspired show on satellite radio. Dubbed New York Nights…Direct from the Bowery, the program will feature tunes from the mid-seventies heyday through current.

New York Nights…Direct From the Bowery will feature Varvatos’ passion for music and stories including his road trip to New York in the late ‘70s to see The Ramones at CBGB’s, the fabled rock club where Varvatos’ flagship clothing store now resides. Listeners will also hear Jesse share stories about his memorable experiences as a musician (D Generation and solo). The two iconic New York figures will play music from artists such as Velvet Underground, David Bowie, Talking Heads, Green Day, John Lennon, New York Dolls and more.
