Playboy Radio’s ‘Night Calls’ to Host ‘Legends of Porn’

LOS ANGELES — Playboy Radio's “Night Calls” will play host to 25 adult industry veterans and insiders over a five-day period beginning Aug. 4 hosted by online radio personalities Christy Canyon and Vanessa Blue.

The radio station is billing the event as “Legends of Porn.”

“Think of it as an X-rated version of 'The View,'” Playboy Radio Programming Director Farrell Hirsch told XBIZ. “And Christy Canyon as Barbara Walters.”

Though this is the fourth time the station has hosted such a event, it is the first time such a lineup has been featured over a week’s time.

“I’m anticipating there will a whole lot of reminiscing going on,” Hirsch said. “And plenty of great stories. With a lineup like Georgina Spelvin, Jim South, Vanessa Del Rio, Herschel Savage, Taylor Wane, Bill Margold and Nina Hartley on Wednesday alone, there’s no telling what direction the show will go in.”

On Aug. 7, the show will be dedicated to the late John Holmes whose new biography will be released Aug. 8, on what would’ve been Holmes’ 64th birthday. Authors of the book Jennifer Sugar and Jill C. Nelson will be the featured guests for the segment alongside Laurie Holmes, Seka and Tom Byron.

The lineup for the remainder of the week is as follows: Monday - Debi Diamond, Bionca Seven, David Christopher, Randy Spears, Roy Karch; Tuesday - Eric Edwards, John Stagliano, Raven Touchstone, Porche Lynn; and Friday - Ron Jeremy, Ed Powers, Kelly Nichols and Veronica Hart.

Hirsch said he will ask each guest to participate in a short, live video interview in hopes of compiling a reel to be aired on Playboy.com.

“Night Calls” on Playboy Radio airs from 4 – 7 p.m. PDT on Sirius, Channel 198.
