Just in case you've been sleeping under a rock....
SIRIUS officially announced that it will unleash classic unedited material from Howard Stern's last 20 years on radio starting this weekend.
The special programming, which has been censored, criticized, fought over and locked away is now making its triumphant return to the airwaves. The material, culled from thousands of fan requests and drawn from their favorite moments from Howard's coveted canon of radio broadcasts, will be played unedited and censor-free, the way it was meant to be heard.
The all-request special begins Labor Day Weekend, airing Friday, September 1 at 3pm ET and will run through Monday, September 4 at 12 midnight ET on Howard 100. Howard 101 will carry a simultaneous West Coast broadcast.
Chosen from 23,000 hours of tape from the last two decades of Howard's radio career, these fan favorite moments will include unedited interviews with such memorable guests as Paul McCartney, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Donald Trump, Sen. Alfonse D'Amato, Sylvester Stallone and Sam Kinison. In addition, bits featuring famed impersonator and past longtime Stern show regular Billy West will air throughout the weekend, as well as classic prank calls, song parodies, live musical performances and much more.
Fans have been invited to send requests online -- at http://www.sirius.com and http://www.howardstern.com -- and to phone in their requests. The phone and web lines will be open through Monday, September 4.
