Stuart McLean | 1948 - 2017

We were deeply saddened to learn that Stuart McLean, one of Canada's most beloved authors and entertainers, has passed away the age of 68 following a battle with melanoma. McLean is the author and host of the acclaimed Vinyl Cafe CBC Radio program, as well as a series of books featuring the Vinyl Cafe stories.

".. Stuart always emphasized that the world is a good place, full of good people, trying to do their best. He believed in people’s extraordinary capacity for love and generosity. And he had faith in our ability to work together for the common good."
