The 2002 release from Stuart McLean. This collection of stories is taken from CBC Radio concerts that were recorded in Banff, Toronto, Kingston, and Outremont. The recording engineers were Geoff Rowland, Al Lamden, Ron Skinner, Rob Selmanovic, and Pierre Plante.
"The Vinyl Cafe is probably the CBC's, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, most successful weekend show. Its American counterpart would be Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion and the funny stories the genial host of the Vinyl Cafe, Stuart McLean, tells are sort of like the News From Lake Wobegon without the politics, religion, and occasional high-horse. As a show, the Vinyl Cafe, when live, is a one-hour set of eclectic music by very different musicians and a story by Stuart McLean about Dave, the owner of a used record store called the Vinyl Cafe, his wife, Morley, their two kids and their neighbors." - The Serious Comedy Site
