Stern and McCartney go in-depth on life, The Beatles and his new Fireman album Electric Arguments.

SIRIUS XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) announced today that it will broadcast a Howard Stern-Paul McCartney special this weekend on SIRIUS XM’s Howard 101 channel, to follow an interview aired earlier in the week.

Howard and McCartney went in-depth on the music legend’s life, family, The Beatles, his new Fireman album Electric Arguments, and much more. McCartney presented Howard with a brand new Hofner bass guitar as a surprise birthday gift, singing as he entered the studio: “A very merry un-birthday to you, to you…a very merry un-birthday to Howard.”

Howard 101 will broadcast a Paul McCartney special featuring this new interview, plus highlights of Stern’s first McCartney interview from 2001. It will air January 17 at 8:00 am ET and 8:00 pm ET, and on January 18 at 11:00 pm ET exclusively on Howard 101.

“Paul’s interview with Howard Stern is not to be missed—it is Paul like you’ve never heard him and it is Howard with one of his all-time heroes,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SIRIUS XM Radio.

The special features tracks from McCartney’s new Fireman album Electric Arguments:

“We decided we would go in the studio and have fun,” said McCartney of the making of his new album. “We’d have the track going, have a groove going, and I just stood up at the mic and started throwing things at it. I’d hear a bit of a lyric or we’d look at a poetry book …we just started to concoct it and put it together and paste it…that’s the whole thing about the Fireman – he can do anything.”
