In Paris, Stanley shows us the Eiffel Tower, but the Eiffel Tower through the eyes of Guy de Maupassant. He also takes us for a tour of the fifty-thousand-bottle wine cellar at Hotel George V, on a boat trip down the Seine, and even gets performance tips from exotic dancers at the Crazy Horse. In Tokyo we see not only to the Imperial Palace and the Cherry Blossom Festival, but also a Sumo wrestling class, the teeming Tsukiji fish market at daybreak, and inside the Saguwa Express, Japan’s version of FedEx. Stanley interviews Geisha girls, shows us the difference between shabu shabu and sukiyaki, and eventually winds up in the mosh pit of a Japanese punk rock show.
Retirement Living TV (RLTV), the only cable network dedicated to serving the needs of adults 55+, will premiere a new travel show, “Stanley On The Go,” on August 10 at 8:00 pm EDT. “Stanley On The Go” is a journey across five continents and an encounter with the world that always uncovers the unexpected. Each trip is an experience, built not just around places but also around events and celebrations. Each episode is a tour de force with a force of nature. Stanley is irrepressible – his commentary is not only informative and enlightening, but is also often surprising and frequently irreverent. He shows us the iconic sights – the Grand Tour – but also uncovers the unexpected.
Stanley On The Go has a charm, an accessibility, a casual approach that immediately draws the viewer in. Whether it’s investigating an arranged marriage in India or hoisting a beer stein in Munich, dodging bulls on the streets of Pamplona or rafting through rapids in Brazil, he does it all with a spirit of adventure, a world of knowledge at his disposal, and an infectious sense of humor. Stanley asks the questions that viewers would ask – and some that they would never dream of asking.
Stanley will share his adventures with us from:
– Pamplona, Spain: Experience what it’s like to be in the bullring with thousands of others to watch the “Running of the Bulls.”
– Patagonia, Chile: See the towering mountains at Torres del Paine and have a lamb dinner prepared the gaucho way at Hotel Remota.
– Paris, France: Of course, there is a visit to the Eiffel Tower, the Seine, and the Louvre, but also experience the wine cellar of the world-famous Hotel George V and the Crazy Horse Salon.
– Carl Vinson: Land on the Navy aircraft carrier at sea off San Diego and watch jets launched and recovered, talk with pilots, tour the galley, and visit bomb handlers and sailors.
“Stanley On The Go” is like seeing the world with a friend; a friend who’s willing to try anything and has an uncanny nose for unusual,” said Elliot Jacobson, SVP of Programming and Production for RLTV. “Stanley has a deft and beguiling talent for getting people to talk, he’s informal yet thorough, managing to balance the playful with the erudite. But, above all else, he’s entertaining,” said Jacobson.
About Stanley Siegel
Stanley Siegel has been an unforgettable media presence for over three decades. In the 1970s and 80s his uncompromising talk show on WABC ensured that he was a defining personality of the New York airwaves. He interviewed everyone who defined the era, from Truman Capote to Frank Zappa, from Patti Smith to Renee Richards. His approach was no holds barred, opinionated, and fearless – he made it personal.
Stanley challenged the expectations of what a talk show could and should be and broadened the boundaries of the genre. He regularly brought on his therapist and underwent treatment on-air. In one infamous show he physically restrained Timothy Leary to prevent him from leaving. His 9:00 am show provoked and delighted in equal measure.
Stanley came out of retirement bringing his intrepid style to “Stanley On The Go,” he has traveled the globe with the show and is now in production with RLTV on a series of specials to compliment the exclusive launch of “Stanley On The Go” on RLTV.
