Howard 100 and Howard 101 are two uncensored channels on Sirius XM Radio, a satellite radio service that broadcasts programming affiliated with Howard Stern and The Howard Stern Show. Though the channels were first broadcast on September 29, 2005, Stern could not officially broadcast until January 1, 2006, as Stern was still at WXRK, the terrestrial radio station where he had to finish his FM radio contract.
Prior to January 2004, Sirius channel 100 was "Sirius Sessions", a channel devoted to live musical performances. Before the channels officially became "Howard 100" and "Howard 101", they had some pre-launch programming in late 2005. It also went through a series of different names.
On September 29, 2005, channels 100 and 101 went live, initially being named "Howard Stern 100" and "Howard Stern 2" respectively. During this time, most of the channels' air time was dead air and the sound of a ground loop hum. It was not until October 6 when the "24-Hour Fartathon" began to broadcast at 6:00am Eastern time, featuring live, non-stop farts. Stern, while broadcasting his show on terrestrial radio, was not allowed to broadcast the Sirius signal. During this time, jingles were made for the channels with announces for "Douche 100" and "Douche 101".
After the Fartathon, channel 100 briefly changed its name from "Douche 100" to "Howard Stern 100" (and 101). Like Douche 100, it did not have much programming and featured the sound of a ground loop hum or natural sound of the sometimes occupied studio. While Stern was still broadcasting on terrestrial radio, he and his show staff came up with a few 24-hour specials.
