The first three episodes of LSU football coach Ed Orgeron's weekly radio show will originate from the South Stadium Club in Tiger Stadium, the school announced Thursday.
The Ed Orgeron Show will be broadcast from the Stadium Club starting Wednesday, Aug. 23. Shows Nos. 2 and 3, set for Aug. 30 and Sept. 6, will also originate from the Stadium Club while renovations to the normal host site, T.J. Ribs, are ongoing. The show returns to the restaurant Sept. 13.
The public is invited to the first three shows at the Stadium Club; Drakes Catering will provide food and drink, including beer and wine. Given limited space in the club, admission is capped at 250, the school announced.
The show begins at 7 p.m.; doors to the South Stadium Club will open at 5:30 p.m. The venue will remain open until 8:30 p.m. Fans are asked to park in Lot 401 off South Stadium Drive.
Beer and wine are coming to the top reaches of Tiger Stadium.
Cox Sports Television will televise the radio show on a tape delay. The show will first air each Wednesday at 8 p.m.
The Ed Orgeron Show will run for 14 straight weeks during the season, including the week of the Tigers' open date. The final show of the regular season will be Wednesday, Nov. 22. The show will be hosted by LSU play-by-play man Chris Blair.
