The greatest story ever told ended today:
Stuart McLean, the host of CBC Radio’s The Vinyl Café and an award-winning humorist, has died at age 68 after a battle with melanoma.
McLean’s trademark blend of storytelling — part nostalgia, part pithy observations about everyday life — and folksy, familiar delivery made him a hit with audiences for more than 20 years.
Stuart McLean’s stories were immediately captivating, comforting, funny, and different from anything else on the radio. His unique voice will be missed.
