Judith Durham died on Friday aged 79, at the Alfred Hospital in her home town of Melbourne. Hers is high up on a very short list of voices I would want to sing me into the hereafter, and I know that many other SteynOnline readers feel the same way about her. She kept almost all of that beautiful voice right to the end. Here she is in the Nineties, on a Seekers reunion tour, with a song that, notwithstanding its fairly appalling author, always touches me: The Seekers were the biggest pop group ever to come out of the Lucky Country. They had a lot of hits around the world, but, when I was in Victoria eight years ago, this was the one that provided the title for the then new biotuner about them that was enjoying its world premiere at Her ...

Renaissance Man

Paul Sorvino died on Monday at the age of 83. He was known above all for Goodfellas - to the point where New York cops would call out "Paulie!" if they spotted him on the other side of the street, and he was late traveling down from Montreal for The Mark Steyn Show because the US border guards at Highgate, Vermont insisted on all getting photographs with him. He did eventually reach our studios, however, and we had an interesting conversation with Paul and his wife Dee Dee Benkie. We talked a little about acting, but more about all the other things he did - from singing to sculpting. He was a man with a tremendous appetite for life, and each of his enthusiasms informed the other. Perhaps that's why, as he mentioned at dinner afterwards, he ...
