Diversions, Distractions & Detours

I love Canada, I love comedy and I love stories. So it was with great sadness when we heard Stuart McLean lost his battle to cancer this week. There is now a huge hole in our weekend radio listening schedule where the Vinyl Cafe held its position for 22 years. With Mr. McLean's passing also comes the death of Dave and Morley and their humorous and touching tales highlighting the decency and dignity of ordinary people.
To my kids, their Canada will be defined by Drake, the Raptors and increasingly mild winters. My Canada is the Beachcombers, the Hip and Stuart McLean. Folksy, but I am ok with that. Thank you to a most deserving officer of the Order of Canada.
