Solving the Labor Problem

Welcome to the final instalment of our latest Tale for Our Time - George Orwell's ever more timely tale of the day after utopia, Animal Farm. Thank you for all your kind comments about this serialization. Last night's episode, of the hard-working Boxer's reward for a lifetime of service, prompted Robert Bridges, a First Month Founding Member of The Mark Steyn Club from Alaska, to write: Translated into modern times... would the farm animals feel so badly about Boxer's leaving if they gotten a piece of the action? Just asking for a friend about the money being paid out by CCP to refocus issues about Wuhan and a few stray bats. Gov. Cuomo retired many older people with less fuss. Indeed. For sending Boxer to the knacker's yard, Napoleon got ...

The Mark Steyn Show

Samoa the Same Old Same Old

WhatsApp Telegram

If you missed Wednesday's live edition of The Mark Steyn Show, here's the action replay. Today's show was a Covid-double-mutation hybrid of the Steyn Show and our Clubland Q&A in which Mark answered questions live around the planet, punctuated by various regular features such as The Hundred Years Ago Show. So, on the one hand, some mo' o' the usual and, on the other, Samoa the unusual. You don't have to be a Mark Steyn Club member to listen to the show, so please click away and enjoy it. But we do thank Steyn Clubbers for, as always, some excellent questions, and we'll pick up a few of the ones we didn't get to in the days ahead. That new audio edition of Steyn's Song of the Week, by the way, can be heard on Serenade Radio this Sunday at 5 ...

Steyn's Song of the Week

What Is This Thing Called Love?

WhatsApp Telegram

Programming note: Steyn's Song of the Week can now be heard weekly on Serenade Radio, every Sunday at 5.30pm British Summer Time. If you missed today's show, you can hear the repeat at 5.30am Monday UK time - that's 9.30pm Pacific Sunday evening on the West Coast of North America, or Monday lunchtime in Australia. This month we are marking the centenary of Nelson Riddle, perhaps the greatest of all arrangers of popular song. That's what Frank Sinatra thought, and we cite "I've Got the World on a String", "I've Got You Under My Skin" and "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out to Dry" as merely the obvious examples. This week's selection is less frequently cited, but is a particular favorite of mine. On March 27th 1929 the Charles B Cochran revue ...
