It Was a Very Good Year

ImageIf you enjoy Steyn's Song of the Week at SteynOnline, please note that there'll be a live stage edition during the 2023 Mark Steyn Cruise - along with many other favorite features from SteynOnline and The Mark Steyn Show. More details here.

Happy New Year to our listeners, viewers and readers around the world. While Mark continues to recuperate from his brace of heart attacks, we're pleased to present a seasonally suitable edition of Steyn's Song of the Week drawn from his Serenade Radio series and airing here for the first time. It certainly was not a Very Good Year either for Mark personally or for the wider world. But we think you'll enjoy Steyn's appreciation of a song that uses the vintages of a well-stocked wine cellar as a metaphor for life - and which, somewhat belatedly, eventually found the perfect singer.

Mark always digs right down to the very roots to explain the wonder and mystery of these songs, composers and artists.
