Barbra Streisand Town Hall Anchors Limited-Time SiriusXM Channel

ShutterstockBarbraStreisandLaunching Friday at 5:00 p.m. ET and running through Friday October 10, SiriusXM’s Barbra Streisand Channel will allow fans to bask in a non-stop flow of the singer’s catalog. From her 1963 debut right through to her new album Partners, releasing September 16.

It’s a clever way to promote Streisand’s new LP and comes with the benefit of an exclusive interview on Sunday. From today’s announcement:

The Barbra Streisand Channel will feature an exclusive “Town Hall” special with Streisand. Streisand will sit down for an intimate Q&A session with a select group of listeners in the SiriusXM studios in New York City.

Moderated by her longtime colleague, music industry executive Jay Landers, SiriusXM’s Town Hall with Barbra Streisand will air Sunday, September 14 at 12:00 pm ET.

“Barbra Streisand is an artist who is the very definition of the word icon,” said Scott Greenstein, president and chief content officer of SiriusXM. “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.”

Tune in starting this Friday via Sirius Channel 69 or XM Channel 73.
