I love Dave and Morley
I am so excited as well. I am also a Canadian living in the U.S. I remember sitting it the kitchen listening to Dave and Morley stories on Sunday afternoons. This brings all the warm funny moments back to me. I am so happy they are on podcast now. Yeah i tunes
An Excellent Addition from CBC Radio
These are very funny stories that can be enjoyed by the whole family. They are perfect for those who enjoy Garrison Keillor and his stories from A Prairie Home Companion. Told before a live audience, the stories revolve around Dave, who owns a used record store called The Vinyl Cafe, and his wife and children. Highly recommended!
Laugh out loud!
I love these stories. I'm so excited they are now podcast. I'm a Canadian living in the US and have missed tuning in weekly. Of course, Dave and Morely's hilarious situations are never as funny as when Stuart McLean reads them himself. Enjoy!
