Stuart MacLean and The Vinyl Cafe

Stuart MacLean is one of Canada's most beloved storytellers. His CBC radio show The Vinyl Cafe premiered in 1994, and each week over a million listeners tune in to hear stories about Dave, owner of the second hand record store where the motto is: "We may not be big, but we're small."

The Vinyl Cafe Christmas Tour 2010 will come on the heels of the release of Stuart’s new book: The Vinyl Cafe Notebooks (a collection of essays from The Vinyl Cafe) and his new double CD: Out and About.


It was a great pleasure to talk with MacLean about the show and his work.
