In Time Now for the Vinyl Cafe Story Exchange, Stuart McLean and his long-time radio producer, Jess Milton, have collected their favourite stories from a decade of their much-loved show. This is a wise, wonderful collage of rituals and romance, road trips and guitar licks, Saturday-night hockey games and Sunday morning pancakes. A story about an exploding outhouse sits right beside one about a lost love because that’s just what happens in life. Sad things are all tangled up with funny things and sweet things, too.
The voices in these stories are private and personal. Reading this collection is like joining a dinner party hosted by Stuart himself.
