Stern Show Essentials are great moments in Stern Show history that every fan needs to hear. This time around, the iconic moments span from Benjy getting intimate with Perez Hilton to Howard goofing on Gary Dell'Abate for his "Playlist," to the birth of Ronnie the Robot.
Get more information on the classic clips (below) and don't forget to check out the segments on SiriusXM on Demand.
Benjy Gets Fingered – June 23, 2014
Stern Show staffer Benjy Bronk really wanted to lose weight in 2014—he just needed the proper motivation. He bet Howard that, if he didn't lose the weight in time, he would agree to get a finger where the sun didn't shine.
Luckily—or unluckily, for Benjy—gossip guru Perez Hilton was in the studio to give Benjy some advice on the bet, but on a whim he offered to do the fingering himself.
Gary's 'Playlist' – August 20, 2012
Back in 2012, a few Stern Show staff members were asked to host their very own music special called "Playlist." Staffers got the chance to pick some of their favorite songs and then added a personal story to go with it.
Howard loved the first episode with Fred, but when he heard Gary's show he likened it to nails on a chalkboard.

Memet in Harlem – May 20, 2015
If you've been listening to the Stern Show in recent years, you've heard all about staffer Memet Walker and his sexual exploits on Tinder. It wasn't that long ago when listeners met Memet for the very first time after an off-air conversation about living in Harlem led to an on-air debut.
Check out the segment which includes recordings of his old neighborhood at night (above).
Sir Paul McCartney Returns – October 08, 2013
There aren't many celebrity guests who make Howard nervous, then again it's not everyday someone gets the chance to speak to one of the Beatles. Sir Paul McCartney has appeared on the Stern Show three times over the years. On his most recent appearance, Howard got the chance to ask Sir Paul about some of the greatest songs he's written, even asking him if the Beatles invented heavy metal with their song "Helter Skelter."
Ronnie the Robot Is Born– May 4, 2016
The world has seen several different sides of Ronnie "the Limo Driver" Mund over the years, but nothing quite like the mechanical version of Howard's driver-head of security, Ronnie the Robot.
Ronnie the Robot made its Stern Show debut on May 4, 2016 and was back for more just five days later. Check out the segment (above).
