There'll Always Be An England (Brussels Permitting)

WhatsApp

Programming note: Tomorrow I'll be back behind the Golden EIB Microphone for three hours of substitute-host-level Open Line Friday on America's Number One radio show. The fun starts at 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific. Hope you'll dial us up either via the iHeart Radio app or on one of over 600 stations across the fruited plain, such as our old friends at WNTK New Hampshire, where you can listen to the full show from anywhere on the planet right here.

On Wednesday afternoon, I kept my midweek date with John Oakley on Toronto's Global News Radio 640. Among the topics were the Gillette #MeToo ad, Justin's showdown with the Chinese Politburo, and Brexit with bonus music-hall gags and Vera Lynn lunch orders. Click below to listen:

For that brave band who prefer me in...

Last Orders

WhatsApp

On our Twelfth Night special, I mentioned one of my very favorite lines of lyric, from "These Foolish Things": The waiters whistling as the last bar closes... A century ago in America, the bars were closing but the waiters weren't whistling. One hundred years ago today - January 16th 1919 - Nebraska, Missouri and Wyoming voted to go dry, and put the Eighteenth Amendment over the top: Prohibition was ratified nationwide. A century on, Americans have relaxed somewhat, to the point where presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren can safely declare, "I'm-a git me some o' that there beer." But US attitudes to alcohol are still different from the rest of the west - and not unconnected, I would hazard, to the dreadful opioid and heroin and meth ...

Births and Brexit, Beijing and Brussels

WhatsApp

A couple of hours ago, Theresa May's faux Brexit went down to the biggest defeat any government has ever suffered in the Commons. It was something I touched on earlier in the day with Danielle Smith, former Wildrose Party leader in Alberta and now top-rated morning host at 770 CHQR in Calgary. Danielle and I started with China and its deathbed demography, but moved by process of the latter to Europe and the enfeebled state of United Kingdom sovereignty. Click below to listen:

~Today featured a double-bill of radio for me, beginning with Dave Allen at 570 WSYR in Syracuse, New York, where Dennis and I will be next month, at the Crouse-Hinds Theatre...

Programming note: At 8am Eastern this Tuesday morning I'll be checking in with Dave Allen on 570 WSYR in Syracuse - where I'll be appearing on stage at the Oncenter with Dennis Miller next month.You can find out more about the Miller/Steyn tour here.

After Syracuse, I'll be heading north of the border to join Danielle Smith at 770 CHQR in Calgary at 11am Mountain Time. It's been a while since I've been on CHQR, so I hope you'll tune in. You can listen live here.

Last night I kept my regular Monday date with Tucker Carlson to talk over the latest brilliant ideas out of California - a ban on paper receipts and a tax on water. First up was Trace Gallagher, then yours truly:

Steyn's Song of the Week

Smoke Gets in Your Eyes

WhatsApp

Exactly sixty years ago - in January 1959 - the Platters had the Number One record in America. And exactly 85 years ago - Paul Whiteman and his Orchestra had the Number One record in America. And oddly enough they both did it with the same song: They asked me how I knew My true love was true... Or as the Platters sang it: The-e-e-ey asked me how I knew... But never mind how many syllables encrust to a one-syllable word over the decades. In more than one hundred years of American pop charts, "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" is the only song ever to be Number One in the same week in different quarter-centuries. Who knows? If only Lionel Richie or Deniece Williams had thought to cover it in 1984, we might have had a hat trick. As to which of those ...
