The first rule of Gene Autry's Cowboy Code is: The Cowboy must never shoot first, hit a smaller man, or take unfair advantage. When the yodelin' cowboy turned baseballin' tycoon (the Los Angeles Angels) departed for that last round-up in the sky twenty years ago - October 1998 - many of the dweebs on the obituaries pages took unfair advantage and hit a lower man (six foot under) with frankly somewhat condescending farewell-and-good-riddances both to Autry and to singing cowboys in general. Gene himself would probably have deferred to their alleged intellectual superiority. After all, as he sang in Yodelin' Kid from Pine Ridge (1937), the cowboy... ...don't know much of art But his song is from the heart Sing me a song of the trail. Gene ...

Perfumes of Arabia

WhatsApp

Our thought for the day comes from Lady Macbeth: Here's the smell of the blood still. All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand. Oh, Oh, Oh! In Saudi Arabia people die in grisly ways every day of the week, but, as I said on Wednesday's John Oakley Show, a chap such as Jamal Khashoggi, a deep-cover spook and former confidant of the highly sinister Prince Turki, does not get whacked except on orders from the very highest in the land. By "very highest", see the two fellows at right. So Friday's formal Saudi announcement that yes, unfortunately Mr Khashoggi was indeed questioned to death in the Istanbul consulate but only by minions gone rogue was inherently risible. Nobody goes rogue in Saudi except for occasional senior ...

Miller and Steyn Together!

WhatsApp

Longtime radio listeners and SteynOnline regulars will know how much Mark enjoyed joining his pal Dennis Miller on the air to talk politics, music, culture and obscure showbiz references. It's been a couple of years since Dennis signed off on his radio show, but we're pleased to announce that Miller and Steyn are back together, and for the first time on stage! Their Adorable Deplorable Tour will swing through Pennsylvania and western New York starting in February. For Mark's Ontario fans, the Syracuse show is just a couple of hours from Kingston, and the Rochester show isn't too far from Niagara Falls and the QEW. (Probably best not to tell the border guard where you were on your way back though.) From witty cultural insights to irreverent ...

Steyn's Song of the Week

Route 66

WhatsApp

We're honored to present another live-performance edition of Mark's Song of the Week:

Bobby Troup was born one hundred years ago - on October 18th 1918 - and, by way of celebration of his centenary, here's his biggest hit - which has been performed by Nat "King" Cole, Chuck Berry, the Rolling Stones and a zillion others, and now by Tal Bachman live on the inaugural and sold-out Mark Steyn Club Cruise. Among other unexpected delights on the cruise, late one night in the Crow's Nest bar the great Michele Bachmann (no relation) joined Tal for an impromptu Bachman-Bachmann Overdrive medley of Tal's hit "She's So High" and his dad Randy's hit "Takin' Care of Business". But Tal is always sporting enough to take a few requests from Steyn and we think you'll enjoy his performance at the piano of a classic American song, introduced by Mark - and with bonus lyrics. To enjoy, simply click below:

We'll have further celebration of Bobby Troup, with more live performances...

From The Mark Steyn Club Cruise sailing down the Eastern Seaboard, welcome to the final episode of John Buchan's prescient thriller set in the hell of the Great War. Greenmantle was one of our most ambitious audio adventures, but we're also delighted to say it's proved one of our most popular. One of our newer Club members took a while to catch on, but is rapt for the final stretch...
