Gratitude for The Vinyl Cafe & CBC

When CBC announced the loss of one of Canada’s greatest storytellers, I instantly looked for the podcasts from The Vinyl Café only to learn that CBC no longer had access. It was like losing Stuart Mclean a second time. Now with the return of his stories, it feels like there’s hope in this tilted world again. As a teacher, I use his stories to help students learn how to add details to their writing, create visualization for the audience, and loop back to the begging. I can’t thank CBC enough for keeping Stuart alive in our hearts and laughter.

Don’t stop!

This has been such a relaxing and wonderful addition to my summer - Stuart was a fixture of my youth and has truly given me peace and relaxation during a stressful summer in this crazy world - If you continued to release more I would be forever grateful.

Thank you and of course - Thank you Stuart looking down on us.

Thank you!

Thank you for bringing Stuart back into our homes! These stories are such a comfort and joy. I hope these continue at Christmas- it simply isn’t the same without Dave’s turkey!
