Programming note: If you missed today's audio edition of Steyn's Song of the Week on Serenade Radio in the UK, do treat yourself and catch the rerun. It airs Monday morn at 5.30am London time - that's 9.30pm Sunday on the US and Canadian West Coast, so a kind of late-night vibe to it, but it's early Monday afternoon in Oz, so a mellow post-prandial feel to it. Whichever you prefer, we hope you'll tune in. You can listen from anywhere on the planet right here. On the subject of rhymed words, albeit without accompanying music, welcome to a brand new entry to our Mark Steyn Club anthology of video poetry. Because, as I always say, video poetry is where the big bucks are. Last month's celebration of the first poem published in Australia ...

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 ...

Just ahead of Episode Eight of our current Tale for Our Time, a word from your humble host: As I was saying a year ago, things are going to get real bad real fast on the free-speech front - in America, Britain, Canada, Europe, and everywhere else where a full-scale merger of Big State and Big Tech is well advanced. I would like to think we'll still be here in a year's time, but looking at the ever swelling ranks of the disappeared, who knows? In such circumstances, I thank all of you who keep this l'il ol' website and its various activities part of your daily rounds. I miss the Internet of yore - before the woketalitarians imposed one-size-fits-all "social media" on the planet and wrecked the thing. Control of the message is, of course, a ...

It's time for Part Seven of Animal Farm, a tale that is almost too timely. Rachel Aranoff, a New York member of The Mark Steyn Club, writes: 'Dear Mark – I am loving your reading of Animal Farm! The line that blew me away in Part Three was, 'It's science!' There is nothing new under the sun. Rachel' Indeed, Rachel. Totalitarianism masquerading as technocracy is the whole trick of modern government...
