He may not have been big but he was tall

Stuart McLean has passed away.


  1. Very sad: I'd no idea he was ill. Did you ever hear him on Gzowski back in the day? So lovely.

  2. He stopped recording/performing in fall of 2015. A really lovely man. I had the honor of meeting him backstage in Vancouver about four years ago. He wanted a detailed report on which of his essays about Vancouver I liked better, and why.

    We've only known about Stuart since 2008 or so; while on vacation near the Canadian border, we stayed in a cabin equipped with a radio that only picked up CBC, and so we heard our first episode of Vinyl Cafe.
