Stuart Mclean is one of Canada’s most beloved storytellers and a best-selling author. His hit CBC radio show THE VINYL CAFE premiered in 1994, and each week over 1 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”.
