Christmas is a time of tradition. And it’s no different for The Vinyl Cafe.
Christmas has been a tradition for them ever since the year that Morley asked her husband Dave to cook the family turkey. Morley came to Dave said: “I want to take the kids to the food bank. And if I’m going to do that I need you to step up to the plate: I need you to cook Christmas dinner.”
Dave agreed. But things didn’t exactly go according to plan. Or his plan anyway. The Vinyl Cafe has been celebrating Christmas ever since by taking the show on the road. And they do what everyone likes to do at Christmas – they gather together with friends to tell stories and sings songs. Stuart McLean is a best-selling author, award-winning journalist and humorist, and host of CBC Radio program, The Vinyl Café. The show’s stories are about Dave, owner of the second hand record store, and they are collected in books and on CD. The stories also feature Dave's wife, Morley, their two children, Sam and Stephanie, and assorted friends and neighbours. The motto of Dave's store - and of the radio show - is "We May Not Be Big, But We're Small".
Join Stuart McLean for this year’s Vinyl Cafe Christmas Concert that will feature two brand new Dave and Morley stories and new music.
