But after a month, you'll be left with memories of the way things were

SiriusXM is launching an exclusive, limited-run station featuring the works of Barbra Streisand, the satellite radio giant announced Monday.

Starting this Friday (Sept. 12) at 5 p.m. ET, through Oct. 10, fans can tune into The Barbra Streisand Channel on Sirius channel 69, XM channel 73 and the SiriusXM Internet Radio App.

The channel will feature live and studio recordings spanning Streisand's career, from her 1963 debut to her newest album, Partners, set to be released on Sept. 16, as well as personal song selections.

The channel will have a Town Hall special with Streisand in which she'll sit down for an intimate Q&A with SiriusXM listeners in New York. The Town Hall is set to air on Sunday, Sept. 14, at noon and will be available on demand after that.

Streisand's channel joins SiriusXM channels devoted to Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Buffett, Willie Nelson, Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Eminem, Neil Diamond and more.

Sirius XM president and chief content officer Scott Greenstein said in a statement: "Barbra Streisand is an artist who is the very definition of the word 'icon.' Her original voice, songwriting, performances and life's work has made her a universal star and humanitarian leader. Along the way, she has created some of the best-selling albums of all time, as well as being an award-winning actress known for her work on stage, film and TV. Our exclusive channel celebrating Ms. Streisand is a truly comprehensive and deep dive into the music of one of the world's most important artists ever. We are looking forward to welcoming Ms. Streisand to our studios to be a part of our Town Hall series and discuss her new album with her fans."
