We were saddened to learn that beloved Canadian storyteller and author Stuart McLean passed away on February 15th. Over the span of 25 years, McLean was the author of 12 books, 8 of which were collections of Vinyl Cafe stories. Sixteen CD collections of Vinyl Cafe stories were also recorded. Most, but not all of the books and CD’s are available. His best known story, Dave Cooks the Turkey, originally recorded in 1996, is included in the book, Home From the Vinyl Cafe, and is included in the CD collection, Vinyl Cafe: Christmas Pack.
