New York Nights…Direct from the Bowery launches today via Sirius XM at 10:00 pm, and will air the first Monday of every month at 10:00 pm ET.  The monthly program can be found left of the satellite dial at The Spectrum (Sirius and XM channel 28).

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.
