The Strip is LIVE tonight w/Englebert!

In our quest to cover all the classic old-timers of Vegas lore, this week's show features our chat with Englebert Humperdinck, the British chart-topper -- don't call him a crooner! -- whose first Vegas shows were produced by Dean Martin and who continues into his 70s to perform around the world. Humperdinck talks about everything from Liberace to Lambert, recalls Howard Stern's playing with his hair, explains why James Blunt fits in the canon with Clapton and McCartney and discusses the fact that his rival, Tom Jones, has received a knighthood while he has not. Humperdinck performs in Vegas at the Orleans on June 11-14.

Plus, news from Vegas, a new trivia question, the poll and, as always, the Top Secret Tourist Tip of the Week.

Miles is back, too, so join us at 6:45 p.m. PT at LVRocks.Com to hear the live show or grab the podcast edition when it's posted by Thursday morning. Subscribe (it's free!) in iTunes.
