love and laughter
over the radio.
Now he’s gone I’ll weep when they play
Stuart McLean’s radio shows featured stories and music. They were hilarious and heartwarming company over the years. He traveled across Canada to communities large and small, recording live shows. I attended one in Toronto almost ten years ago.
It was with shock that I heard that he passed away today, only 68. His show, called The Vinyl Cafe, was loved by many Canadians and public radio listeners in the United States. Vinyl Cafe stories about Dave, Morley and their two children, Sam and Stephanie, are available in podcasts, books and on CD.
