'Tis the season at SteynOnline: we have plenty of Yuletide Steynamite Specials over at the Steyn Store, including an all-star celebration with today's special guest. And, if you really want to treat your beloved this Christmas, there's always the gift of a lifetime: a stateroom on the Mark Steyn Caribbean Cruise, with Eva Vlaardingerbroek, Conrad Black, Michele Bachmann, Bo Snerdley, Leilani Dowding and more, including a live-performance edition of a Tale for Our Time.
~During last year's seasonal Tales for Our Time, Steyn Club member Rede Batcheller wrote with a request:
Next, if you dare, Dylan Thomas' A Child's Christmas in Wales. TYVM!!!!
Well, I love that tale, Rede, but I'm not sure my Welsh vowels are totally reliable. So we have something even better for you this December weekend - an authentic Welsh lady, the great Siân Phillips, who, during her own childhood Christmases, actually worked with Dylan Thomas - as she and Mark discussed on a Steyn holiday special a few years back. Click below to watch:
Among the benefits of Mark Steyn Club membership is that you can enjoy our TV content in any medium you desire: video, audio or text. So, if you'd rather experience Dame Siân and Dylan Thomas in audio or text only, please log-in here.
You can find more non-visual content from The Mark Steyn Show over in our Audio & Transcripts department. And, if you'd like to hear more from Siân, she recreates her Tony-nominated performance of "See What the Boys in the Back Room Will Have" on our Frank Loesser centenary special, available here.
Tales for Our Time is a production of The Mark Steyn Club. We launched The Mark Steyn Club over six years ago, and on this seventh clubland Christmas we're immensely heartened by all those viewers and listeners and readers across the globe - from Fargo to Fiji, Vancouver to Vanuatu, Surrey to the Solomon Islands - who've signed up to be a part of it. Oh, and if you're still holiday shopping, don't forget our Steyn Club Gift Membership. More details here.
