CBC Radio presents the stories and misadventures of Dave, the owner of the "Vinyl Cafe", the world's smallest record store, where the motto is "We may not be big, but we're small." The show also features Dave's wife, Morley, their two children, Sam and Stephanie and assorted friends and neighbours.
||CleanVinyl Cafe Holiday Special||Christmas was a big deal at The Vinyl Cafe. It started way back in 1996. Here's Stuart’s final holiday special, recorded in Thunder Bay, Ontario, at the very last show that Stuart performed before he passed away in February 2017.||12/15/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
Like comfortable slippers
Stuart's stories, whether they are of Dave & Morley and the gang or of his tales of his adventures across Canada, never ever fail to be humourous, poignant, warm, and gratifying. His live shows have that added spark of an audience that sits in silence waiting for the story to unravel and laughs along with you as the tales flow so effortlessly and vividly from Stuart. His stories of the people he meets in his travels across Canada reminds me how similar we all are and he is able to make Canada feel like a village, that BC is just around the corner, you can almost see the wheat fields of the prairies or smell the odour of Parliament in Ottawa. Do yourself a favour and listen to Stuart where you will not be interupted and pretty soon you will demand NOT to be interupted whenever you listen to The Vinyl Cafe. Keep up the good work Stuart and the Vinyl Cafe Gang! Cheers from Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia.
Part of the Family
We always try to catch The Vinyl Cafe on the radio, in hopes of hearing another "Dave" story. My kids are being indoctrinated as they grow up with Dave & Morley Christmas stories. My sister and her family take the CDs on long road trips. The stories are fun on their own but even better as you get to know Dave and Morley and their family, and as their adventures become part of our family's fun moments.
Stuart McLean is one of the best story tellers...period. I've been waiting for his stories to come into podcast form for a long time, and the day has finally arrived. Thank you CBC!
