I watch very little TV. On occasions I do watch C-Span & C-Span2.

This describes a broad range of his books.

3 hours is a long view time for me. Is there a specific portion that you really liked?

I didn’t know Steyn wrote a book on Broadway Musicals. I would be interested to read his take on these.

It is a great book on broadway musicals, Broadway Babies I think is its name.

He also wrote a book of London obituaries. I cannot remember whether they are all his from his days at the London Times or whether it is a collection of other people’s work as well.

Last Sunday’s program was an extended conversation. Steyn gave an excellent hour long speech last year re: his book “After America: Get Ready For Armageddon:”
