Programming note: Today I'll be back behind the Golden EIB Microphone for another three hours of substitute-host-level Excellence In Broadcasting 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.
What's on the rundown for today's show? Well, I like to play my cards close to my chest, but we'll try to hit all the big stories roiling the fruited plain, including the Democrats' determination to impeach the President for, er, winning the presidential election. If you watched the second half of my interview with George Papadopoulos, you'll know there were tragic consequences to the Democrat-Deep State-media obsessions of the last two years. And, if you didn't watch it, well, you should. It's disturbing:
In this episode those seeking to entrap a junior Trump campaign staffer go through every dangle in the book from lots of cash to exotic honeypots. Then comes Robert Mueller, and prison - and the terrible personal cost to George and his family:
Part One of my interview with George Papadopoulos can be found here - and, if you...

We're awash in music this weekend as our Mark Steyn Club second-birthday celebrations continue. Today we're honored to present another live-performance edition of Steyn's Song of the Week, and with the irrepressible Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits.
A couple of weeks back I noted the death of a marvelous pop composer, Les Reed, and chose to memorialize him with an early hit for Tom Jones, "It's Not Unusual". But I mentioned en passant:
Les and Geoff [Stephens] went on to write many other songs, including their masterpiece, 'There's a Kind of Hush (All Over the World Tonight)', which Herman's Hermits made a monster hit all over the world now and forever. I love the melody Reed came up with, and maybe we'll do that for a Song of the Week in the weeks ahead.
So I sat down with Peter Noone to talk about the song and to hear him perform it acoustically and then live on stage with a full complement of Herman's Hermits:
One of the most popular features of Tales for Our Time has been the music Mark chooses to accompany each story. So here, after many requests, is a sampler of the accompanying melodies from some of our tales...

Following last year's sell-out maiden voyage, we decided to make the Mark Steyn Club Cruise an annual event. And so the second Steyn cruise will leave Vancouver on September 4th and sail through Alaska's beautiful Inside Passage to Glacier Bay. I'll be doing double-duty, hosting the cruise, and also hosting live editions of The Mark Steyn Show at sea...
