The broadcast, which will run throughout December, features Sambora performing solo material plus Bon Jovi hits at New York City's The Iridium, the club where Les Paul famously staged weekly performances until his death in 2009.

"I jammed with him everywhere, from Fat Tuesday's to The Iridium," Sambora told Gibson.com, in a 2012 interview. "His life was a model. He stressed the importance of always keeping busy, of having things to do, and keeping your mind flexible and nimble. Of course he also stressed the importance of continuing to play. The guy played those Monday night shows until he was 93."
