Il bello della musica è che quando ti colpisce non senti dolore

— Bob Marley, Studio 54 Network motto


Studio 54 Network was founded on June 6, 1985 from an idea of Pietro Parretta and Francesco Massara with Enzo Gatto, Memmo Minniti, Pietro Musmeci, with the historic name of Radio DJ Studio Club 54.

Like almost all the free radio stations it began as a game, and then in the early 1990s, came the awareness of not leaving behind career goals.

With the Mammì law for the Italian broadcast in 1990, the game replaced the company.

In 1991, was the first Calabrian radios (and one of the first in Italy) to use the Radio Data System.

In 1994, the issue was digitized, and since then the transmission quality can not be matched with analog equipment. This was the first time in Calabria that this was achieved, and the first time in Italy that this technology is fully utilized for this purpose.

Since 1995, thanks to the acquisition of business of other Calabrian issuers, leaving the boundaries of the historic Ionian coast of the Province of Reggio Calabria, expanding its customer base in Calabria and then adjacent regions.

In 1997 he was one of the first Italian radios perform transmission experiments, especially regarding webcasting technology in Real Audio.

In 1998, its name changed "Studio 54 Network".

In 2000, construction of the first mobile studio Stargate marked the beginning of a new editorial policy: radio broadcasting from the square, the crowd.[1]
